Upcoming Sessions

Our instructor guided, online classes are conducted through our online training platform.  All lectures are pre-recorded so that you can progress through the materials at your own pace.  The same applies to the exercises.  You will have access to the instructor via email, phone, or chat if you have questions or problems.  The instructor will be in weekly contact with the students in each class session.  Our goal is to get everyone through the materials during the session dates. However, access to the course materials never expires so if you don’t finish during the session dates you will still have access to the materials.

"I have attended a number of instructor lead  training courses offered by ESRI, which are great in their own right, but the Mastering the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API course gets much more in-depth than they often do.  I really liked the recommended reading, they helped expand the terms being covered in lecture to concrete examples that could be related back to my work more directly instead of just having the lecture and exercises alone.  I learned a lot andwill recommend this and other GeoSpatial Training courses to the GIS'ers I know. Thanks for putting this course together and offering it ...
