Two accreditations are available from Safe Software; Certified Trainer and Certified Professional, each of which is available for a maximum three year term. At this year’s Safe Software annual reseller event, the 1Spatial team won two awards; Contribution to the FME Knowledge Center and Special Recognition – Certified FME Trainer of 2015.

In recent months 1Spatial has extended its FME certified team with the addition of an extra FME Certified Trainer, Mark Farrington. Mark is one of the team’s veteran FME specialists having worked with FME for nearly 10 years as a long standing FME Certified Professional. In addition to Mark’s accolade, both Mary O’Brien and David Eagle have both recently been reassessed and re-accredited as Certified FME Trainers for a further three years.


“I am delighted the team is continuing to grow the number of FME Certified people we have on staff,” says David Eagle. “At 1Spatial our aim is to continue working on positively and effectively promoting the use of FME technology, where it fits into our customers’ requirements. Having these certifications helps to reassure our customers of our level of expertise.”

At the event he was honoured with two awards, one for being ‘Certified FME Trainer of 2015’ and another for his ‘Contribution to the FME Knowledge Center’.


These awards recognise the work done by David Eagle. The first award recognised him for delivering one of the highest volumes of face-to-face FME training at all levels and on all FME products in 2015.
