Virtual GIS Training

Yale members have the option to join the Esri e-Learning platform to access hundreds of GIS virtual training at no cost.

If you were familiar with access codes for virtual courses, starting August 15, 2016 those codes are no longer necessary. Instead, you just need to:

  1. Access and setup, if you have not done so, your Yale University ArcGIS Online Account.
  2. Once you login, please look for your name on the top right corner. 
  3. Click the drop-down menu, you should be able to find "Training"
  4. Once you get access to the Esri e-Learning platform, you may browse their course catalog

Be aware that many instructor-led training are not included as a no-cost option with the site license. However, you may review hundreds of virtual training that are available at no cost for Yale members.
