January 28, 2011: The GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) today made
public a proposal to update requirements for GIS Professional (GISP)
certification. Key among the proposed updates is the addition of a
required examination. The Working Group that prepared the proposal
recommends that the exam be based on the U.S. Department of Labor's new
Geospatial Technology Competency Model and related resources. 
The "GISP Certification Update" proposal is available for public review
at, along with instructions on how individuals can
share their views about proposed changes. As part of its deliberations
the GISCI Board of Directors will consider comments received between
February 1 and February 28, 2011. A Board decision about proposed
changes is expected in April, 2011.
