IRNR to conduct GIS training Oct. 21-22 in College Station

The Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources (IRNR) will conduct an Introduction to ArcGIS 10 training course Oct. 21-22 in College Station.

The course will be from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. both days at the institute, located at 1500 Research Parkway, Room 200, in Texas A&M University’s Research Park.

The course teaches the range of functionality of the software and the essential tools for visualizing, creating, managing and analyzing geographic data, according to Amy Snelgrove, a program manager for IRNR and instructor for the course.

Snelgrove has both Certified GIS Professional and Comptia Certified Technical Training certifications.

“The exercises of this hands-on course emphasize practice with ArcMap and ArcCatalog to perform common GIS tasks and workflows,” she said. “Students will learn the tools for creating and managing geographic data, displaying data on maps in different ways, and combining and analyzing data to discover patterns and relationships. By the end of the course, they will be prepared to work with the software on their own.”

The course fee is $500 and includes refreshments, course materials and a certificate of completion.

“The fee, minus a nonrefundable processing fee, will be refunded if the institute receives notice of cancellation at least six business days prior to the class start date,” Snelgrove said.  

More information and registration are available on the course’s webpage. Classes are limited to 10 participants. On-site training can also be scheduled by contacting Snelgrove at amy-snelgrove@tamu.edu.
