The course will be delivered by one of our expert team who collectively have over 50 years' experience in creating and maintaining address and street data.

The courses are delivered directly by GeoPlace members of staff, we don't outsource our training. This means you will be trained by experts who have been involved in writing the specifications for the data as well as bringing years of practical experience of data management.

What you will get out of it

The course is designed to either compliment the introductory course or be taken in isolation to gain more of an understanding of the data structure, how to understand the Data Transfer Format and trouble shoot errors, as well as a detailed look at the various reports produced.   You will gain an understanding of the reporting cycle and we take a detailed look at the data linking carried out and best practice on working through your monthly reports.

You really will get as much out of the day as you put in. We suggest you think a little before you attend about what you want to discuss or find out more about.

With a maximum number of 8 attendees, the course is planned to enable attendees to ask questions throughout the day.

Who should attend

The advanced course is designed mainly for Custodians or Deputy Custodians who have been in the role for more than 6 months.

Some Custodians who have been in the role for a shorter amount of time will also benefit from this course, but we would advise completing the introductory course first.  This is also a great course for Custodians who have been in the role for a while and feel they would like to expand their knowledge in these areas that are subject to continual change and development.

If you are in doubt, please contact us and we can advise you.
