The first phase of the Geospatial Data Management (GIS) training program was implemented at National University of Architecture and Construction of Armenia. Forty-two employees of the “Geomatics Center”, “Information Technology Center”, Geodesy and Land Management Department, and territorial divisions of the Internal Control Department of the Cadastre Committee of the Republic of Armenia participated in the course and successfully completed it.

            The following training courses were carried out within the framework of the program:

  • “Fundamentals of GIS and Spatial Databases. QGIS”,
  • “Fundamentals of GIS and Spatial Databases. ArcGIS Desktop”,
  • “National Spatial Data Infrastructure”.

            Based on the content of the courses, a manual has been prepared, which can be useful both for the employees who have participated in the course and those who have not, as well as for the newly hired employees.

            The certificate awarding ceremony was attended by NUACA Chief of the Staff Hovsep Hoveyan, the Head of Quality Assurance Center Varazdat Hovhannisyan, and the Head of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Support Center Lusine Harutyunyan.

A summary attestation was conducted, and based on the results, two groups were separated, the participants of which successfully completed the course with excellence.
