ArcGIS Pro Quick-Start for the GIS Professional

16 Hours, 1.6 CEUs
Dates/Time: January 20-21, 2022 / 8 am - 5 pm
Cost: $960

With 64-bit processing, enhanced 3D capabilities, and a whole new interface, ArcGIS Pro promises a wealth of potential for experienced GIS users. This course is designed to help existing ArcMap users get up and running in Pro as quickly as possible. Become familiar with the new project structure, understand the intuitive and dynamic interface structure, and learn how to do all of your favorite tasks in a whole new way. 

Introduction to Mapping with ArcGIS Online and Portal

16 Hours, 1.6 CEUs
Dates/Time: February 7-8, 2022 / 8 am – 5 pm
Cost: $960

GIS gives you an easy way to get access to the tremendous amounts of data available, and with the advent of web-based GIS, creating and consuming maps is even simpler and more collaborative. At first glance, web GIS lets you see spatial data on a map. But underneath, it has powerful tools for analyzing the data. With ArcGIS Online® and Portal for ArcGIS®, you can quickly create a heat map showing crime rates, evaluate oil field productivity, plan shelters and triage centers for an emergency, or explore a site for potential environmental issues. The course will also introduce you to the new possibilities of a web GIS for collaboration and cooperation. This class is the first step in learning to incorporate this valuable tool into your daily workflows.


16 Hours, 1.6 CEUs
Dates/Time: April 4-5, 2022 / 8 am - 5 pm
Cost: $960

This course introduces participants to the ArcGIS Pro software. The class begins with the basics of navigating the map and walks through the process of creating maps, optimizing the display of the data, and performing spatial analysis. At the completion of this course, those attending should have a strong foundation in the basic use of ArcGIS Pro and have an understanding of the strengths of performing spatial analysis with a GIS.

Intermediate ArcGIS Pro

24 Hours, 2.4 CEUs
Dates/Time: April 6-8, 2022 / 8 am - 5 pm
Cost: $1,440

One of the things that makes ArcGIS so useful is the tremendous amount of data available to map and analyze. In this course, you will learn to find, connect to, create, manage, and analyze that data. Students learn to search government sites for available GIS data, import non-GIS data formats, and to connect maps to non-spatial spreadsheets, database tables, and other file formats. For example, linking parcels to scanned documents like deeds, and attaching photographs to road hazard locations.

Students also learn to create, maintain, and manipulate your organizations internal data to keep the data relevant, up-to-date, and useful.

Finally, this course also teaches how to present GIS data, by focusing on map labeling techniques and layout skills.

“This program is crucial for anyone in the HR profession who would like to expand their current knowledge base and network with other HR professionals. The instructor was very well qualified to teach this course and I gained so much more from attending this seminar than expected.”
Rhonda Vidal, Human Resource Manager

“This is must training for all new folks to the human resource function. Not only do you learn the fundamentals of HR but you also get to learn from your peers the challenges they face. Very good chance you’ll have a different perspective and understanding of the human resource function within your organization.”
Peter Frank, Director of Finance

“The wealth of information covering compensation, benefits, employee development, and performance management was wonderful. Since my specialty area has always been in recruitment and placement, I had a hard time getting my supervisors to approve training outside that area. The SHRM Essentials program was a great way to gain education in other HR disciplines.”

New Students - Providing your SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER is Important

A Social Security Number (SSN) is required to identify student's permanent records. The Midland College registration system automatically encrypts a student’s social security number into a student identification number. The student ID is used for all internal printed material and provides additional protection of a students’ privacy.

Students are urged to become familiar with the Student ID Number and to use it when communicating with College offices. Students are requested to provide their SSN to the College for maintenance of their student records; it also allows the College to meet federal and state-reporting requirements.
