Where do I start?

If you are new to GIS then we recommend that you learn ArcGIS Pro. Start with Introduction to ArcGIS Pro for GIS Newcomers. If you have used ArcMap previously but are new to ArcGIS Pro then our Migrating from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro course would be a good place to start.

If you can’t use ArcGIS Pro and intend on using ArcMap then please contact us for options.

For help choosing the right starting point, please get in touch.

If my colleagues all want to do the same course – can we have a course onsite?

Yes. We can either deliver a private virtual course for you or contact us for information about our onsite training options – learning@esriuk.com.

Can we have customised training for our staff?

Yes. We understand the additional benefits of having customised courses based on your data, workflows and processes. Please contact us for more information regarding our customised course options – learning@esriuk.com.

Which software version are the courses based on?

For Server based courses this will be specified. ArcGIS Pro courses will be based on v3.x or higher.

I want to publish a map to the web, which course should I take?

Sharing Content to ArcGIS Enterprise is a great course to start with to show how simple this process can be. Our Developing Web Apps using the ArcGIS API for JavaScript course also covers the variety of methods for map publishing.

I want to publish a map to the web but I don’t have ArcGIS Enterprise.

This can be achieved using ArcGIS Online, our 2 day An Introduction to your ArcGIS Online Subscription course will help you with this.
