ARCGIS PRO COURSE, FROM BEGINNER TO ADVANCED

ONLINE TRAINING

START DATE: 23RD OF JANUARY | 1ST OF MAY (140 hours)

PRICE: 400€ (Standard fee) | 360€ (Student / Unemployed fee)

This course will qualify students in ArcGIS PRO, beginning with basic operations using vector and raster data models, creating basic maps/layouts, and progressing to complex spatial analysis using Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst tools, topological corrections of layers in a geodatabase, task automation using ModelBuilder, and route analysis with Network Analysis, among other things.

Students will be trained in the creation and editing of vector and raster data, the use of basic greoprocessing tools available in ArcGIS PRO, the management and possible relationships between layers within a geodatabase, the use of topology to correct layers, advanced multi-criteria analysis, and network analysis such as finding the best routes and best times. The course also provides useful information for the creation of high-quality mapping products.

Students who register for this online course will have access to our virtual e-learning platform (which is available 24 hours). Here, they will find the course content, the practical and evaluation exercises, the forum discussion, and much more. One of the benefits of this course is that students can receive real-time support and assistance from the instructor whenever needed. The support for course-related issues is provided via direct messages and forum discussions on the platform, as well as via email or online meetings.

Why study Arcgis ArcGIS Pro?

The usage of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is rapidly growing, becoming an essential tool in a variety of business sectors like engineering, environment, geography, mining or geomarketing.

Among GIS tools, ArcGIS is one of the most used GIS software worldwide, the most stable and versatile, comprised by a set of integrated applications, with a solid documentation over a wide range of tools being also supported by a large community.

ArcGIS provides contextual tools for data visualization, mapping and spatial analysis, connecting and combining information from varied sources (local and online), offering complex capabilities in order to explore, gain and enquire knowledge, that will lead to the best decisions. It can be also handled using a user interface as well as in command line using specific programming languages, like Python.

Do I need previous knowledge in ArcGIS Pro?

No, the training course starts from the very beginning.

I don’t have the ArcGIS Pro program. What can I do?

ArcGIS PRO software has a free trial license for a period of 21 days. You only need to create an account, download the program and follow the installation steps (see the website). However, we will assist you if you encounter any problem.

Moodle, the world’s most popular learning platform, is used to deliver our online courses. It is a highly adaptable Learning Management System that can be used to conduct and access courses, complete practical exercise tasks, interact with teaching staff in person, or benefit from support and resources at any time.

The online platform is available 24 hours a day, and the student can request assistance at any time. The instructors will serve as supervisors throughout the training process, assisting students with any difficulties they may encounter along the way.

The course is divided into modules, making it simple for students to find training material, download information, complete practical exercises, and take assessments to validate their newly acquired skills. The instructors will assist students throughout the course, providing progressive help and information based on their progress.
