GIS Training Programs and Workshops
A variety of training programs are available.
Virtual campus. Each CSU campus has unlimited access to certain online courses through ESRI's Virtual Campus. The Virtual Campus Subscription Administrator for each campus provides access codes to these courses. For more information regarding the Virtual Campus class descriptions, please see the ESRI Virtual Campus Web site.
SpatiaLABS. New from Esri Press, SpatiaLABS are interdisciplinary GIS exercises for colleges
and universities that develop spatial reasoning and analysis skills. Since 2012 this product has been added to our site license. The materials were shipped to each campus to the Site License Administrator.
ESRI User Conference. The ESRI User Conference and Education User Conference are held once a year in San Diego, usually in July. These conferences are a valuable way to learn more about techniques and applications of GIS.
On-line training module. ArcGIS & Business Analyst Training Modules for Site Selection
Business Analyst Training Modules. These teaching modules are designed to train students to perform site location analysis using the Business Analyst extension of ArcGIS. They were developed, written and copyrighted by Michael Reibel under a grant from the California State University Geographic Information System (GIS) Specialty Center. These modules are property of the CSU GIS Specialty Center. Permission to use them is hereby granted for academic purposes. Use of these teaching modules for training in any setting other than a high school or university course is expressly forbidden without the written consent of the CSU GIS Specialty Center. These modules deal exclusively with operational issues pertaining to performing site selection analysis using the Business Analyst extension in ArcGIS. They do not teach the basic operation of the ArcGIS program suite, nor do they cover the general theory and practice of site selection for different operational purposes. The modules can therefore be combined with other curriculum material depending on the scope of GIS and/or site selection courses.
