Quote from the Classroom
“I’m a knowledge shark, I’ve got a feeding frenzy for it.”
— Jerry Partridge, GIS Operator DeFuniak Springs, Florida
In August, Jerry Partridge completed his seventeenth Esri web course, for a total of 87 hours of learning in just a few weeks. Jerry admits he has a passion for learning and eagerly awaits the release of new courses to support his work in the Walton County Property Appraiser’s Office. In the meantime, he has created a feature wall to display his Esri course certificates of completion.
