Geographic Information Systems training course coming to San Antonio March 30-31

The Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources (IRNR) will conduct an Introduction to ArcGIS 10 training course March 30-31 in San Antonio.

The course will be 8 a.m.-5 p.m. both days at IRNR’s San Antonio office, 1919 Oakwell Farms Parkway, Suite 100.

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, an IRNR program manager 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,” Snelgrove 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. 

The registration form is available at irnr.tamu.edu/arcgis. Classes are limited to 12 participants.

On-site training can also be scheduled by contacting Snelgrove at amy-snelgrove@tamu.edu. For more information, visit the website or email Snelgrove.
