ArcGIS Pro 2 – Essential Workflows for ArcGIS Pro


Extend your foundational GIS knowledge, get comfortable with the ArcGIS Pro application, and explore some of the most common GIS workflows. This course introduces techniques and general best practices to map, manage, analyze, and share data and other GIS resources. Hands-on exercises will give you the experience needed to efficiently work with ArcGIS Pro.

NOTE: Attendance of either our Introduction to ArcGIS Pro for Newcomers or for GIS Professionals or Migrating from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro courses are the pre-requisite knowledge for attending this course. If you have not attended either of these courses, in order for you (and the other delegates on this course) to get the most from this training it will be assumed that you have the level of knowledge shown below. If you cannot do these tasks then you must attend the one of our Introduction to ArcGIS Pro courses first:

    • Understand the ArcGIS Pro ribbon user interface
    • Create a map; add layers and perform basic symbolising
    • Query layers and find information in your portal
    • Understand how to find and run a geoprocessing tool
    • Perform basic editing
    • Know how to create a layout
    • Share your content


Continuing professional development (CPD) is an integral part of applying for and maintaining Chartered Geographer accreditation. Attendance of this course will provide the attendee with 8 CPD points. Click here to find out more
