If you didn’t already know, we launched our first intake of the Ordnance Survey Accreditation Programme in September 2012 to create a network of geographic information (GI) experts. It’s a scheme that accredits independent technical experts who have significant experience in the GI industry. The Accredited Consultants offer technical consultancy services, external to their business, relating to our products and services, independently of Ordnance Survey.
Earlier this month we launched the second intake for the Accredited Consultant programme. If you’re interested in applying, then please see our website for further information.
We launched the programme to ensure that the best industry experts are available, independently of Ordnance Survey, so we can ensure our customers have access to the impartial advice and most up to date information on our products that they need.
Following the first intake, we accredited 14 consultants and you can read about them on our website. We have since successfully hosted our first event at our headquarters in Southampton. The event allowed our consultants to meet for the first time and set out to find how both Ordnance Survey and the consultants see the programme developing during the coming year.
