Hi,

I'm sure there are several posts covering this question, so please feel free to post link!

I'm looking to pursue an online GIS certificate. I have limited GIS experience through a USGS internship. I have field biology experience, but want to become more marketable in environmental management by gaining ArcGIS skills.

I've found a very affordable (900/course and includes access to ESRI ArcGIS) certificate prgoram through the University of Toronto that focuses on GIS for environmental management. Does anyone know anything about the worth of this online program? Can anyone suggest other online programs that are not outrageously expensive (2500/course!)?

Thanks!

You may want to check out BCIT.  I think the GIS Advanced Diploma is offered fully online now.  The courses are reasonable prices and includes access to software.  Note that if you are doing the diploma program the online courses do end up being more money than completing the diploma as a full-time, inclass student.
