Learn GNSS navigation principles

Certificate of completion available

Beginners who want to quickly grasp all main concepts behind GNSS should not miss this exhaustive online training. GNSS can be a rather complex subject to start learning. This course was developed ad-hoc for beginners to simplify the learning experience. Several people are forced to learn these concepts the hard way in their work. Other miss opportunities for developing their career because GNSS concepts present challenges. Experts in the field of navigation, sensors, surveying techniques, and autonomous platforms have finally developed a comprehensive, yet simple-to-grasp curriculum, rich in animations and clearly explained concepts. An online course for beginners, containing all the practical and essential principles on GNSS.
