I am looking to obtain my GISP, and I am wondering if Massive Open Online Course (MOOCs) can count towards the GISP course points if the MOOC is related to GIS?

1 Answer 1


It will be up to the committee upon submittal.
It must follow the documented credential outlined in the EDU section of the GISP step by step instructions ( The link is to a powerpoint from the GISCI website).
Page 6 and page 14-15 outline the minimums to meet.
page 16-22 help with calculating points for accredited edu. Page 23 has guidance for vague courses.
