20 Mar 2018 - GIM Suite Learning

New advanced learning unit: Extend GIM Suite

Database managers or geoscience professionals looking to take the next step in their data management career now have a new learning option to help them get there.

acQuire now offers Extend GIM Suite (302), which covers advanced data migrations and workplace modifications and contributes to GIM Suite Professional (3000) accreditation.

This course is useful for administrators who need to introduce new datasets and workflows to an existing installation. When a company acquires new tenements, buys out a company or goes into joint venture, it may necessitate migration of new datasets.

Extend GIM Suite (302) focuses on surface sampling point data, which may also be new to some users whose sole focus has been drillholes. Administrators will also learn to build a workflow into their current workspace for the new data: there may be gaps that do not cover viewing, exporting and loading this type of data in the future and a whole new workflow may need to be built.

The course, which has prerequisite classes in the Professional stream would also suit Nova Network Partners who want to offer greater services to their clients.

The unit adds to the others already available in the course – Administrator Advanced (301) and Advanced SQL, Script Objects and Data Tracking (400). More details on the learning pathways can be found at our learning pathways page.

In addition to the new unit being added, there are also new updates to GIM Suite Learning. You can find more resources are available via our Online Learning portal. If you haven’t yet signed up to our online learning, head over to:
