Training

We create and deliver targeted courses to address the shortage of data analytics skills for companies, organisations and individuals.

Our training courses deliver real-world, practical and up-to-date knowledge to give you the confidence to make commercial use of your data and of the vast amounts of environmental data being generated from satellites, sensors and other sources.

When we partner with your organisation we can include bespoke in-situ training, providing expert insight through hands-on workshops and the practical experience your team needs to make full use of your new data analytics and software platforms.
