Following the recent launch of our new online training portal, we are is pleased to announce that our special introductory offer for the Online GML Fundamentals course sold out in less than 48 hours. As part of our 10 year anniversary celebrations, Snowflake offered a special 10 for 10 for 10 promotion enabling 10 people to take the new course for just £10. We donated all proceeds from the sell-out offer to Soft Power Education, an NGO that supports health and education projects in Busoga, Uganda.
The Snowflake GML course is the only self-paced, online GML Fundamentals training course available worldwide which takes registrants through a modular framework allowing them to work at their own speed and fit training around their requirements. Led by our in-house GML Trainer, Ballal Joglekar, the course is designed to be truly interactive with audible in-depth explanations and end of module quizzes enabling self assessment of learning objectives. Importantly, students benefit from CPD credits on completion of the AGI accredited course.
“The Online GML Fundamentals course makes GML training accessible to anyone, anywhere. It gives employees and organisations additional choice and flexibility for learning”, explains Ballal Joglekar. “Following our experience in providing interactive ‘classroom’ style training we have designed the online course to go beyond traditional ‘e-learning’ slides by incorporating voice over explanations, interactive diagrams and quizzes to engage students and enable them to assess their own progress.”
Sheila Drake, Training Manager at Snowflake comments “The training is available 24/7, to a worldwide audience, expanding our mission to support the industry in the use of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard, GML. When training and travel budgets are being reduced, online training such as ours is an efficient and affordable option for continued professional development.”
“The GML Fundamentals course is just the first of our popular training courses to be made available in this self learning, online format, with additional courses being made available as part of the online training portal during 2012,” continues Sheila Drake.
Following the 10 for 10 for 10 promotion, we received excellent feedback on the quality and accessibility of the course including that the format is “very easy and clear to use” and that “being able to do self-paced stuff is great.”
The Online GML Fundamentals course is available to purchase online, with a credit/debit card, for the regular retail price of £250 (ex VAT) and can be started immediately.
