Collegiate Accreditation

About the Program

USGIF’s accreditation of collegiate Geospatial Intelligence Certificate Programs awards colleges and universities the ability to offer students GEOINT certificates accompanying a college degree.

The program matches knowledge and skills, identified by USGIF in its Essential Body of Knowledge (EBK), needed in the professional workforce with the education and training provided to students. The program benefits the students, colleges, universities, industry, government, and the GEOINT Community at large, by ensuring current hiring needs are reflected in cross-disciplinary classroom coursework.

A USGIF GEOINT Certificate proves to hiring organizations that the holder is ready to work in the GEOINT Community on Day 1. Students know that along with their degree the GEOINT certificate ensures they have the skills to start working in the ever-expanding, global GEOINT Community.
