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

The geographic information systems 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 the institute 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 non-refundable processing fee will be returned 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 on the course’s Web page at http://irnr.tamu.edu/arcgis/. Classes are limited to 10 participants.

Snelgrove said one additional 2014 course is scheduled Oct. 8-9. On-site training can also be scheduled by contacting Snelgrove at amy-snelgrove@tamu.edu.
