Obtaining a technical certification is a powerful way for students to differentiate themselves, whether they are continuing in their academic careers or entering the workforce. That is why the Esri Technical Certification Program is partnering with users in higher education so they can align their geospatial curriculum with the ArcGIS Desktop Entry certification. This way, educational institutions can provide a clearer path for students to become certified GIS practitioners.
