Online training opportunities

UN-SPIDER acts as a facilitator of capacity-building in the use of space-based information for disaster management and as a gateway to space information for disaster management support. In lines with these roles, the programme curates information about in person as well as online learning opportunities provided by third parties that aim to support users in building skills in using space data and relevant applications to develop information products.

The table below list online courses that aim at strengthening capacities to acquire, process and map space-based information to support decision-making. The courses are offered by a wide range of organizations and are displayed below for information purposes.
