New Training and Certification Offerings from Esri


New Instructor-Led Curriculum for the ArcGIS 10.1 Release
For the ArcGIS 10.1 release, Esri Training Services has redesigned its instructor-led curriculum to provide clear learning paths for GIS professionals and users. The new curriculum takes a holistic approach to teaching how to author, share, and use GIS maps and tools across the ArcGIS system.

The new curriculum begins with two courses that teach foundational GIS concepts and the software skills needed to be productive right away with ArcGIS. Students will be immersed in group activities and hands-on exercises in which they get experience with desktop, server, online, and even mobile ArcGIS platforms.

From the foundational courses, students can branch off to courses that focus on functional areas of GIS. Courses on web and desktop application development round out the curriculum.

ArcGIS 10.1 Foundation Courses

Analysis, Visualization, and Editing


ArcGIS for Server

Desktop Customization and Development

Web Application Development

Esri Training Services will continue to offer several of the most popular ArcGIS 10 courses for a period of time to support customers who will not be upgrading immediately.
