Free Training Courses + Certificates:

There are total 16 courses ranging from basic to advanced level. Among these 16 courses, BRS-Labs is offering three online training courses FREE of cost for which one can also get certificates of accomplishment.

These three courses are numbered 1, 2 and 5 in their course list and their names are as under.

  1. Space Science and Satellites Overview for General Managers & Supervisors
  2. Remote Sensing Fundamentals
  3. Satellite Images Visual Interpretation

The brief details of these courses is given below.

1. Space Science and Satellites Overview for General Managers & Supervisors

This short course contains 4 lectures and aims to introduce space science and satellites for those who will supervise, manage, or achieve by themselves any practical work or projects based on satellite images, remote sensing, or geographic information systems. The course explains a group of overview topics in a gradual sequence that matches the lifetime of a satellite from its start to its end.

2. Remote Sensing Fundamentals

This 6 lectures course would provide a foundational understanding of the practical remote sensing processes studied in all further courses. It focuses on understanding satellite images and presenting an introduction to remote sensing science fundamentals. It includes an explanation of many important topics, such as usages and applications of satellite images, types of resolutions, understanding differences between various types of satellite images, electromagnetic spectrum, waves, frequencies, data types produced from satellite images, deciding which type of satellite images is most suitable for your project, how to buy a satellite image.

3. Satellite Images Visual Interpretation

This course has total 8 lectures and designed to teach the basics of remote sensing analysis. More specifically, one can learn how to recognize the contents of satellite images by performing visual interpretation and analysis of various civilian features and contents exist in these images. The interpretation elements which will be learned and applied are [shape, size, shadow, color, tone, texture, pattern, height and depth, site, situation, and association].
