Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop 10.5

Course Fee: $950

3-day class, using ESRI and LICGF materials

This new 3-day class is perfect for new users or existing casual or self-taught users who want a comprehensive hands-on overview of ArcGIS Desktop functionality. Since ESRI has discontinued the certified instructor program LICGF has decided on this course to replace ESRI’s ArcGIS 1 and ArcGIS 2 classes, combining most of that content into an efficiently presented 3-day class. The “Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop” third edition by ESRI Press will serve as the primary reference and exercise book supplemented with lectures and additional exercises and reference material by LICGF.
