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 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.
The knowledge and skills learned by students are based on USGIF’s Essential Body of Knowledge (EBK).
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.
Colleges and universities must apply and meet the guidelines and standards in order to have undergraduate and/or graduate programs accredited.
