Instructor-Led Training

Classroom Training
Instructor-led courses include lectures and hands-on exercises presented in a traditional classroom setting. An Esri Canada expert instructor is available for questions and guidance throughout the class. These classes offer an incredibly effective way to grasp GIS concepts, explore applications and learn to use Esri GIS software and related technologies. Instructor-led courses combine personal delivery, hands-on experience and class participation to create a rich learning environment.

With class time divided almost equally between lectures and exercises, and Esri Canada's policy of one person per computer at our modern training facilities, attendees have ample time to practice their skills and apply what they learn. Esri Canada always teaches using the latest software releases.
