Telecoms Utilities GIS Training Course Outline

Deployment Module
Training Objectives
This training aims to build and strengthen
competency of a critical mass of Econet staff to be
able to perform data collection, build and manage
a GIS, and perform analysis for Projects, Site
Acquisition, Construction and Network
Optimisation.

Expected Results
At the end of this training each trained individual
3D Terrain and Building - Harare CBD
section should be proficient in GIS. The following
specific outputs are expected (each participant to
this training will have):
Better understanding of GIS Software, Hardware, Data and Applications in the context of
telecoms utilities operations
Comprehensive and practical telecoms utilities data sets knowledge
Designing and constructing a telecoms utilities geodatabase based on the telecoms GIS model
Perform analysis and produce map-based reports
Our training approach enhances the learning experience by providing extra time to review and
practice course concepts in the context of your organizations specific workflows with the trainers
guidance.
