Introductory ESRI classes are taught by our two experienced ESRI-authorized instructors Cheryl Wilder and Mary Ullrich. Cheryl is the KCGIS Center Training Coordinator, and both Cheryl and Mary are working GIS analysts.
KCGIS Training Express custom classes are taught by senior GIS staff with many years of real-world hands-on experience. There is no one better to learn from.
