Behind the buzz: ArcGIS 10.1 training

I don’t need to tell you that the release of ArcGIS 10.1 is imminent. If you visit the Esri website there’s a lot of buzz for ArcGIS 10.1 training. These courses are in the final stages of development, but you can have a look to find out what will be covered, and get an insight into new features of ArcGIS 10.1.

Esri are constantly reviewing their content and learning approach. So as with most new releases you’ll see the results. This release is no different; with ArcGIS 10.1 well see an overhaul of our training courses. I may be slightly biased [excuse me while I finish off my Kool Aid] but I do believe that the changes are a welcome shift towards more workflow based training. Whilst you’re learning the features and functionality you’re also learning the best methods, and workflows to make the most of the technology.

Now I’m sure you’ve got some questions about the 10.1 training, So here are a few answers that I prepared earlier.

Will there be what’s new in ArcGIS 10.1 training?

Migrating to ArcGIS 10.1 for Server will not just showcase the new features at ArcGIS 10.1 but provide the information you’ll need to start planning your migration strategy back in the office.

What’s new in ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 and What’s in Editing at ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 are still relevant for those moving across from ArcGIS 9.3.1, and anyone with a focus on using ArcGIS Desktop.

Is there any ArcGIS 10.1 training available now?

Esri are presenting FREE training seminars, if you can’t make it to these live events they are recorded. Here’s the latest recording: Creating Desktop Add-ins Using Python (for ArcGIS 10.1)

The next free seminar is scheduled for May 25th, Working with Lidar Data in ArcGIS 10.1

Will Australian data be included?

We’ve had great feedback for the Australian content we’ve included in our ArcGIS 10.0 courses. We will be working towards creating even more Australian based exercises for those chapters that will work well with local examples.

When will the ArcGIS 10.1 courses be available in Australia?

We will release a detailed plan for the roll out of courses on release of ArcGIS 10.1.

I can promise there will be a transition period whereby we will continue to offer relevant ArcGIS 10.0 courses.
