The certification of the course about Geographic Information Systems applied to municipality management is now available.

This certification period is opened after the publishing of the last modules of the course, but it will be open continuously, so that any user can get it at any moment when they finish the different modules.

To get this certification, a complete exercise must be completed, which includes some of the contents given during the course. Likewise, you must have at least 7 of the 10 existing activities correctly.

The certification will be issued by the gvSIG Association, and it will consist of two certificates:
