This course appears to no longer be available: http://training.esri.com/gateway/index.cfm?fa=catalog.webCourseDetail&courseid=1942 . Specifically looking for the ArcMap course, not Pro, as we will not be moving to Pro for quite some time and need for folks to be able to learn how to use the current software.

Hi Thomas,

The "Learning ArcGIS Desktop (for ArcGIS 10.0)" web course was retired January 1, 2018.
https://www.esri.com/training/new-and-retired-training/ 

 

There is an introductory tutorial available - Get Started with ArcMap. It's available for free.

Will the full Arc Map course be re-released for the 10.5-10.6 environment? That 10.0 course was very handy for getting some one with almost no GIS skills to handling basic mapping. The 3 hour tutorial doesn't quite achieve that.
