What is the difference between the Esri Training site and Esri Canada training?

Published 2020/12/01 by

Esri Academy

The Esri Training site, also referred to as the Esri Academy, provides a single, searchable catalogue of learning resources in different formats including web courses, SpatiaLABS and MOOCs. Certain resources are freely available or simply require an ArcGIS Online account.

You will have unlimited access to all e-learning content, such as self-paced web courses, through your ArcGIS Online Entitlement subscription.

Instructor-led Training

Esri Canada offers 1-, 2-, or 3-day instructor-led training courses that include lectures and hands-on exercises. You may take up to two standard training courses from Esri Canada and should plan to do so within a year of being nominated for the scholarship.

Term End

The three-year term will end June 30, 2024, regardless of when the licenses are activated or first used. If you are nominated and complete the requirements (i.e., submit your poster) earlier in 2021, you will benefit from an extended license period.

If you already have a license, for example, a Desktop license from yourinstitution, you may continue to use that license or replace it with the scholarship license, but the term end date will not change.

License Renewal

At the end of the term, you will be able to purchase an ArcGIS for Student Use or an ArcGIS for Personal Use license to maintain your Desktop license and will have the option to pay the regular annual fee to maintain your Premium App licenses and/or ArcGIS Developer Subscription.

Will the posters be displayed anywhere?

You are strongly encouraged to upload your poster to your profile.
