Modular ERDAS IMAGINE Training in the UK

Just select the ERDAS IMAGINE modules you require from the list below. Please note you must be confident that you meet the prerequisites for the selected modules, either from taking that module or from prior experience.

Our training days in the UK generally run from 09:30 through to 16:30 with an hour for lunch and regular breaks throughout the day. We plan to fit in around 8 units per day, although this does vary somewhat on the number and experience of the attendees.

We are always happy to utilise your own data or further customise the training required – just get in touch.
