New Instructor-Led Courses
Esri’s instructor-led courses are developed in-house by subject matter experts who have a deep understanding of ArcGIS best practices and recommended workflows. All instructors have Esri Technical Certifications and CompTIA CTT+ certification. Currently, all instructor-led courses are taught online in real time and offered in multiple US time zones.
If you are a brand-new ArcGIS user who wants to use maps and apps to enhance your work, a GIS professional who needs to knowledgeably apply the latest ArcGIS tools to maintain accurate land records data, or an administrator at a utility organization, the following courses can help you achieve the results you’re after:
- ArcGIS Online: Essential Workflows
This one-day, hands-on course is ideal for new members of an ArcGIS Online organization or ArcGIS Enterprise portal website. Participants get to explore web maps and apps and learn how to access, create, and share content that infuses projects with geographic context, additional business intelligence, and visual impact.
- Working with Parcel Data in ArcGIS Pro
This course teaches attendees how to maintain accurate, authoritative parcel data using the parcel fabric in ArcGIS Pro. Participants learn a standard workflow for creating a parcel fabric in a file geodatabase, adding parcel data to the fabric, and editing parcels to reflect real-world changes. Familiarity with land records terminology is expected.
- Configuring Utility Networks in ArcGIS
In this course, learners discover how to create a utility network in an enterprise geodatabase so they can realistically model their organization’s utility assets and complex infrastructure. Attendees apply key workflows to optimize the utility network and support operations. Course exercises can be completed using electric, gas, or water utility data.
Grow Your Professional Skill Set with Esri MOOCs
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are free and convenient, offering a great way to keep up with fast-changing technologies.

A certificate of completion is awarded to everyone who completes all the course content.
Upcoming courses include the following:
- Do-It-Yourself Geo Apps: Over four weeks, attendees get hands-on experience creating beautiful custom web and mobile apps that include powerful geospatial capabilities—and no coding is required. The course runs from July 29 to August 26. Learn more and register.
- Going Places with Spatial Analysis: Esri’s original MOOC will be offered again from August 12 to September 23. Join this course to learn how spatial analysis differs from other kinds of data analysis, and work with ArcGIS Online tools to complete real-world analysis workflows. Learn more and register.
If you’re looking to validate your ArcGIS software expertise with an Esri Technical Certification but are unable to travel to a testing center, you’ll be interested to know that Esri’s testing partner, Pearson VUE, offers exam testing online through its secure OnVUE delivery method. With OnVUE, individuals can take an exam from the comfort and convenience of their own work spaces while being monitored by an off-site proctor.
Taking a certification exam using OnVUE just requires three simple steps:
- Run a system test.
- Schedule an exam appointment.
- On exam day, log in and take the exam.
