ESRI Training has been this mixed bag for me in 2012. With the CTP programing ending – I’ve been making some minor course corrections to the business. That started before I found out it was ending – but with that announcement it was time to do something different. NRGS training is changing – and in a good way. What? you expected me to say it’s getting worse?
I developed a Model Builder class – I’ve taught it once and once the Holidays are over I’ll be teaching it again. It will probably be a regular thing that is going to occur.Expect a Part II covering more python.
I developed a Quantum GIS class – it’s been taught once and I’m making changes to that – I’m really excited about this class. I think it has a ton of potential. Once I got through the first class I realized how excited I was about this class
I’m delving back into my old stomping grounds now – ArcGIS. I received an email from someone last week: I need a step 1 ArcGIS Class. I have no clue what I’m doing. I teach that – ArcGIS Desktop I. Except it’s so hard to get people into the class I rarely teach it. So – a new one day class is forming. This thing is based off numerous clients and 20 years working with the software. What will be covered:
- ArcGIS Interface
- Symbolizing Data
- Map Layouts
What do you get? A days worth of probably not me (see what I did there) babbling about GIS. A years worth of support over email (Level III) and access (finally) to the support website that finally became a reality over Thanksgiving. So hopefully that makes this class slightly more appealing than the other ArcMap classes out and about. it’s priced at $425 per person – but that’s all negotiable. I’ll bring the software and hardware if you can’t make it. Doughnuts are on NRGS. Possibly lunch. I’m not sure how popular this one will be – but – it will be there as an offering.
