I've been hearing about GIS for some time now, this is the first opportunity that I've gotten to come to training.  I know that it will be difficult spending each Saturday here, but I've decided to make the sacrifice.  I know that this is cutting edge technology and this is the future.  I would to be able to provide my students with these skills which will better prepare them for the future.  I consider myself a techie and I love incorporating technology and Social Studies.

The reason I choose to spend my Saturday’s at Arc Gis is to expand my education and further enhance my skills to make me more marketable in society. This program seems to offer the skills required to create a more compressive understanding of statistical analyzation for the Modern World. I find spending Saturday’s a necessary requirement Because I am in the Commerce industry. I am a Commercial Truck Driver. I truly believe with these skills that Gis offer could enhance productivity in the industry.
