Woking, Surrey 2nd September 2010 – Gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets are pleased to announce that both their upcoming BS7666 training courses and November’s Gazetteer Best Practice Day, ‘One Wales – One Voice’ have been accredited by the AGI (Association for Geographic Information).
Attendance at either event will see the awarding of four AGI CPD points, which help those aiming to become a Chartered Geographer or are looking to keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date through Continuing Professional Development.
One Wales - One Voice is an event in the series of Gazetteer Best Practice Days hosted by Aligned Assets. It will see presentations and debate from across the Welsh gazetteer community including local government, the emergency services, Welsh Assembly Government and the AGI.
One Wales – One Voice seeks to bring these varying requirements together to discuss, debate and ultimately gain consensus, and will benefit anyone working in address management in Wales.
An Introduction to BS7666 is a one day training course being offered either onsite or from the Aligned Assets offices in Surrey. The course provides an introduction to BS7666 for those unfamiliar with its purpose but who will be affected by its implications. Those attending will gain an insight into all the important BS7666 legislation that is underpinning change within Local Authorities, the Police and the Fire & Rescue Service.
Managing Director, Dinesh Thanigasalam said of the AGI Accreditation, “By gaining AGI Accreditation and being able to offer CPD points, I believe this further demonstrates the core value and innate benefits that people gain from attending our training and events.”
“We are very proud to continue offering ways to help both the public and private sectors, and are delighted that this has been acknowledged by the AGI.”
