Staying on the cutting edge of the ever-evolving field of data usage can be a challenge. But Civic Impact’s training center, GovEx Academy is here to keep you current.
What We Do
As a dedicated public sector employee, you know how important it is to keep your data skills, approaches, and governance sharp. With your demanding job, your time for training is quite limited and finding data training that meets your specialized public service needs maybe impossible.
The GovEx Academy is the only training center designed for and dedicated to improving the data skills of the public sector workforce. We work within your schedule by offering a full suite of online training which will deepen your skills managing, analyzing, and communicating with data. Alongside your government and NGO peers, you’ll be trained using your own data and solving the problems you face daily.
How We Do It
Based on our sister center’s GovEx practical experience working with government, GovEx Academy has developed an ever expanding curriculum of trainings designed to meet the real world needs of the public sector workforce.
No matter your skill level or where you are located, GovEx Academy meets you where you are. We offer a range of courses from self-guided data fundamentals to 4-week courses on the most advanced data science techniques. These are available online or a GovEx instructor can come to your organization to offer customized training.
While the online Academy is open to all public sector employees, courses are offered free to all staff of US cities (with populations over 30,000) which has completed its application for What Works Cities Certification.
Who We Are
All GovEx Academy instructors are former public sector employees who understand the demands and intricacies of your work. Our instructors are supported by a team of curriculum designers and developers who are dedicated to offering you the most accessible and applicable trainings.
