Learning Pathways

      A learning pathway defines a set of ESRI training
      courses, both Instructor-led and Virtual Campus, that
      focus on a particular aspect of GIS. Within a learning
      pathway, participants can choose some courses based
      on their own interests. A pathway certificate is
      awarded upon completion.
                Learning Pathways

Fundamentals of ArcGIS Desktop Learning Pathway — This pathway is
designed for users who are new to GIS and ArcGIS Desktop.
GIS Data Production and Editing Learning Pathway — This pathway is
designed for GIS technicians, specialists, and others responsible for
creating and editing spatial data.
GIS Analysis Learning Pathway — This pathway is designed for GIS
analysts and others performing vector and raster analysis.
Geodatabase Management Learning Pathway — This pathway is
designed for GIS end-users, managers and administrators who are
responsible for using, designing, implementing, or administering a
multiuser geodatabase.
               What is GIS?

  maps and data sources. GIS integrates
  databases with georeferenced spatial data.
