USGIF is strengthening the GEOINT profession through the creation of a new geospatial intelligence certification based on the GEOINT Essential Body of Knowledge (EBK). This in-depth, professional certification requires knowledge of remote sensing and imagery analysis, GIS and analysis tools, data management, data visualization, synthesis and reporting. There will be three exams covering these topics.
Achieving USGIF’s Universal GEOINT Certification will allow geospatial professionals to distinguish themselves as internationally recognized GEOINT practitioners. USGIF is conducting pilot exams prior to the release of each exam to the public. Results from these pilot exams will be used to finalize exam content and set pass/fail criteria. Any individual who takes and passes a pilot exam receives credit for completing that portion of the USGIF certification.
USGIF will be administering pilot exams for the Remote Sensing and Imagery Analysis and Data Management certificates. Successfully passing each exam will result in being granted the appropriate USGIF professional certificate, which counts toward award of the USGIF Universal GEOINT Certification.
Pilot exams will take place at USGIF Offices:
2325 Dulles Corner Blvd, Suite 450
Herndon, VA 20171
