Nothing beats presenting at the Education Summit!

Each year I'm honored to engage with a room full of talented GIS professionals, educators, and students eager to learn how to integrate certification attainment opportunities into their educational programs. Typically, the session begins with an introduction to the Esri Technical Certification Program and an overview of the future of exam development. Then the fun really begins, the audience engages in a lively discussion to ask questions and share their successes as they integrate additional ArcGIS skills into their curriculum.


Last year, we had an engaging discussion about how higher education institutions can ...

  • Align their curriculum to the ArcGIS Desktop Entry Certification
  • Locate their Certification Alignment Tools
  • Prepare their faculty to become Esri-Certified
  • Locate the Exam Information Guide to prepare for an exam
  • Identify the exam's levels of cognitive complexity with the Exam Information Guide
  • Engage with our team in GeoNet

The presentation is attached, see below.


This year, we'll share a success story... 

Join me and Justin Madron, from the University of Richmond, as we present a deep dive on how the University of Richmond – School of Professional and Continuing Studies created a certificate program to address the gap between traditional education and a labor market demanding highly qualified technical professionals.
