The HOLL (Hands-On Learning Lab) is a training resource provided and developed by Esri Training Services. The lab is an excellent way to introduce ArcGIS® software users to a variety of Esri® solutions and training opportunities while learning to use Esri software.

The HOLL consists of a group of laptops with headphones where students can work through lessons at their own pace. A lesson consists of a recorded presentation followed by a hands-on exercise. Each lesson typically takes from about 45 minutes to one hour to complete, and students can generally come and go as they please.No advanced registration is required.
