GIS Certification Institute
Geographic Information Systems Professional
701 Lee St.., Suite 680, Des Plaines IL 60016
The GISP certification program was founded on the principle that real-world work experience combined with education and professional association activities could serve as a proxy for a comprehensive exam on the basics of geographic information science and technology (GIS&T). This was because, when the GISCI program was created, there was no established guide for the content of such a test.
