Education and training in satellite remote sensing is constantly receiving increasing attention. Many educational and training facilities prevail. There exist nowadays international or regional or national facilities. In addition, some national facilities have an essential international function or have an additional regional function. Some of these facilities provide education and training on a permanent continuous basis, while others function on an occasional basis. The various facilities have different specializations and are oriented for specific strata of people.

As remote-sensing technology has developed, training requirements have varied and at the same time the contents of the courses have become much more diversified, making it difficult for individuals or countries to decide with certainty as to what type of training is available, where it is available and when. This paper, which has been collected and compiled during the preparation of the UNISPACE 82 document on ‘Training and Education of Users of Space Technology’ and thereafter mainly addresses this gap. It discusses the current situation in satellite remote-sensing education and training opportunities available worldwide and provides a valuable list of contact addresses where necessary.
