NCEO training courses in Earth Observation and related topics

Free, online training courses, produced by NCEO experts, in a variety of Earth observation topics including data assimilation, data processing and monitoring atmospheric composition.

These training materials, and downloadable notes, are hosted by a variety of websites and repositories such as:

  • Data Tree
  • FutureLearn
  • GitHub
  • Jupyter
  • mybinder

New course submissions

In spring 2023, NCEO initiated a web redevelopment project to replace this website. The new website plans to reshape the way we offer training courses for staff, students and anyone else with an interest in EO-related training. Internal training courses will be offered via a staff login. Technical training courses will be ‘open access’, free, and available to everyone, subject to completing a registration form.

Please contact Uzma Saeed, NCEO Training Officer, with upcoming proposals for new technical training courses so that they can be included in our plans.
