    Geospatial Technology Competency Model

    The Geospatial Technology Competency Model framework was developed through a collaborative effort involving the Employment and Training Administration (ETA), the GeoTech Center, and industry experts.
    Over the course of 2013-2014, the GeoTech Center and industry subject matter experts updated the model with guidance from ETA to reflect the knowledge and skills needed by today's geospatial technology professionals. For information on the changes from the previous version on the model, download the Summary of Changes.
