For your convenience, the Department offers a rich resource
of web based GIS training. On-line courses include an introduction to GIS topics, hands-on exercises,
a test to assess newly acquired skills, and a certificate issued upon completion of the course.
These classes are made available through the
ESRI Virtual Campus.
Virtual Campus offers a wealth of information on GIS
technology, applications, and science. The Department purchased a subscription,
so there is ready access to a variety of courses. In-depth courses such as Learning
ArcGIS or Understanding Geographic Data can take 18-24 hours to complete,
while smaller workshops on specific topics such as Labeling
in ArcMap and Customizing ArcMap may take only 2-4 hours to complete.
If you are interested in on-line training, have your supervisor send an email
or memo stating the class you are interested in and why you need the class. Send to ...
PO Box 428
ESRI will be notified and the course access code will be emailed to you.
Course content is often very similar to that of
instructor-led training. So join your fellow users on the campus. If you have questions, call
