New Training and Certification Offerings


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. Courses are currently offered online, in real time (in multiple time zones), and as private training events.

Are you looking to build consensus and encourage action on key GIS and organizational initiatives? Perhaps you need to deliver data-driven insight to colleagues and decision-makers. If either of these scenarios speaks to you, take a look at the following courses:

GIS learners can take courses in multiple formats, including instructor-led classes and massive open online courses (MOOCs).

Take an Esri MOOC

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are free and convenient and offer a great way to build in-demand skills and stay up-to-date with Esri technology. Participants get access to ArcGIS software, and each course includes video lectures by Esri experts, hands-on software exercises, and interactive forums to engage with learners from around the world. Everyone who completes the course content receives a certificate of completion.
