For more than a decade, the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) has provided a portfolio-based GIS Professional (GISP) Certification. Now, to strengthen the GISP Certification, GISCI is adding an examination component in 2015. This session will describe why the GISP Certification is important to your career. It will also provide a brief history of the GISCI and the GISP Certification, and will explain the rationale for adding an exam. The exam development process will be described and current, renewing, and prospective GISPs will learn how to prepare for the enhanced criteria and process.
