Audience:

Those who are experienced with Geocortex Essentials’ workflow capabilities, comfortable with .NET programming concepts, and are looking to build upon their knowledge and better understand more advanced design practices.

Prerequisites:
  • Have a fundamental knowledge of:
    • ArcGIS technologies
    • GIS concepts
  • Have a working knowledge of:
    • VB expressions
    • Geocortex Essentials workflows
  • Test your system to ensure that Adobe Connect and the virtual machine that you will be using during training can run successfully
  • We recommend using two monitors for an ideal learning experience

Please note: if you do not meet these requirements, you may be asked to postpone your training until these prerequisites are met.

Need to fit training into your busy schedule?

The scheduled training below offers you an online, instructor-led classroom experience, but you can also take courses when they’re more convenient for you! Self-directed course delivery includes:

  • 2-3 consecutive days’ access (dependent on course) to a Geocortex training environment
  • All course materials
  • Access to a Geocortex instructor during office hours

All self-directed courses are offered at the same prices as their instructor-led equivalents.

Customer Reviews

"I used knowledge from the class the very next day in my workflows. I understand how workflows actually work much better than I did before."
Sean McClurkan
Application Consultant
"As someone who has recently been using Workflow Foundations for a few years, this course tied together a lot conceptually for me. It was well laid out and presented, and the course material was applicable to a lot of the work I have been doing. A must for anyone who is getting more involved in developing workflows."
