Training Without Travel

Travel restrictions don't have to mean missing out on important training. Via the online classroom, Esri offers instructor-led classes that GIS professionals can take from anywhere. Students gain the advantages of live instruction from an Esri professional trainer but don't have to be away from the office or get travel approval. Classes are held in real time in an interactive environment that promotes learning.

Students watch lectures and demos, ask questions of the instructor, participate in class discussions, and complete course exercises. The instructor can even shadow students' computers to see how they're doing and offer assistance.

An Internet connection and phone are all that's required. Esri hosts the latest version of all software needed to complete course exercises. Students don't need to have it installed on their computers.
