General GIS Training Options

  • FOSS4G GeoAcademy Curriculum - Free courses using QGIS software.
  • Lynda.com: Now LinkedIn Learning.  Course access does require a subscription.  However, check with your employer or local library if they already have a subscription, which would allow you with free access.  For example, Mesa and Chandler Public Libraries offer free access to those with library cards.
