Our Customers Say:

“The QGIS course has been absolutely fantastic for us. Its been great to go straight into the bones of the software and how it works without all the padding you get with the usual IT courses. The trainer had a wealth of knowledge and was very engaging and friendly.”

Vale of Glamorgan Council

“The QGIS Fast Track training offered by thinkWhere is great. The course walked us through all the essential steps – without spending a lot of time on basics that we already knew.”
