Professional Certification

The Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in fall 2011 issued a directive requiring each Intelligence Community Functional Manager to develop a certification program for individual professionals in their discipline.

Responding to this requirement, the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) is building a Professional GEOINT Certification program to serve all members of the global GEOINT Community. This professional certification will encompass the broad range of geospatial science and technology competencies required of contemporary GEOINT practitioners.

The Foundation is also cultivating partnerships worldwide with a number of existing professional certification organizations to develop a transportable, transparent Professional GEOINT Certification that is applicable within U.S. Defense, Intelligence and Homeland Security Community as well as the civilian and international communities.
