GISCI Approves an Exam Development Plan That Will Complement the Portfolio-Based Certification Process

April 08, 2013 -- At a special meeting on March 14, the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) Board of Directors approved the GISCI Exam Development Plan.  The exam will complement GISCI's portfolio-based certification process.  Initial work on exam development has begun and the exam is scheduled to be launched in the first quarter of 2015.

President Michael Vanhook commented, "I am very appreciative of the GISCI Board and the Exam Working Group as they work together to move the exam forward." He added, "As a component of the application process the exam will further enhance the GISP certification. It will provide GISCI and the community with opportunities that we didn't have before now to advance the Institute and utilize the best professional standards to evaluate competencies, including the work of many GIS professionals and the US Department of Labor competency model. GISCI has strengthened its efforts to provide value to the GISP."   

GISCI expects to provide more updates as the exam is developed.
