Among GIS tools, ArcGIS Pro is proclaimed as the program par excellence due to its stability, versatility and expansion, being the most used GIS software around the world.
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?
Esri (creators of the ArcGIS program) provides a free licence for a 2 month trail. You only need to create an account, download the program and follow the installation steps (visit their website). Nevertheless, we are available to solve any problem you may have.
The online format uses the online learning and technological platform Moodle, a telematics tool that works through the internet. It is a learning platform that provides students access to the training course content, fulfill the practical cases and consult the teaching staff, as well as availability to the resources and help at any moment.
The platform is available 24 hours a day, through which the student will be able to ask for help at any given moment. Instructors will reinforce the student´s autonomy during its training process, supporting and clarifying any possible doubts that may arise along the course.
Therefore, the course is carried out through different areas available on the online platform and where the student can search for training material, download information, complete the practical exercises and take assessments to verify the assimilated knowledge. Teachers will offer progressively the basic information needed to work towards the completion of a final practical case.
