Welcome to the CEOS Training Calendar, a shared resource of training events from around the globe.

Here you can find trainings relating to a broad set of thematic areas and geographies offered by CEOS members and associates, the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) members, and other organizations engaged in providing trainings on Earth observations. The primary objective of this calendar is to increase awareness of trainings and connect users with training opportunities to learn more about Earth observations.

Hosted by the CEOS Systems Engineering Office and supported by the CEOS Working Group for Capacity Building and Data Democracy (WGCapD), this calendar continues to grow and we hope you find it useful. Please explore, find training opportunities, and share feedback!
