Formal PDH Approval
GeoLearn has established a relationship with Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi to provide formal Professional Development Hour (PDH) approval for its online courses.
A comprehensive review program has been developed to evaluate the course content, to validate the course learning objectives and to assess the qualifications of the instructor. Through this review process, GeoLearn courses meet the same educational standards as Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s ABET-accredited degree program.
Many licensing boards accept PDHs that are attached to courses that undergo a process similar to the one GeoLearn follows with TAMU-CC. Where needed, GeoLearn will also seek approval from state licensing or certification boards, as needed. However, it is important for you to check with your particular state to confirm that our course(s) meet(s) its requirements for professional development, if you are not already aware of the statutes, rules and regulations that would apply. We would appreciate being informed of the outcome of such contacts that you might make with licensing boards.
TAMU-CC’s Geographic Information Science & Geospatial Surveying Engineering Program
The GISc and GSEN programs at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi are among the premier geomatics and GIS undergraduate, graduate, and post-baccalaureate certificates awarded in the United States. Their degree programs provide students with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities required by today's highly competitive and highly paid geospatial job market.
TAMU-CC’s degree programs enable students to apply both scientific and mathematical principles to model the earth. Their students are trained to gather geospatial data via land surveying and convert this data, along with other data resources, into manageable maps and databases for display and analysis. A career in the geospatial industry is a student's opportunity to explore the world and utilize the latest computer technologies and sciences. In addition to a number of careers in the geospatial industry, all graduates are eligible to take the licensing examinations for Surveyor in Training (SIT) and, ultimately, Registered Professional Land Surveyor (RPLS).
Please visit the TAMU-CC GISc and GSEN website for exciting details on their programs and to view a variety of videos on careers in the geospatial industry, research done by the students and faculty and coverage of geospatial issues.
