Audience:

Those who are experienced with Geocortex Essentials’ workflow capabilities, comfortable with .NET programming concepts, and are looking to build upon their knowledge and better understand more advanced design practices.

Prerequisites:
  • Have a fundamental knowledge of:
    • ArcGIS technologies
    • GIS concepts
  • Have a working knowledge of:
    • VB expressions
    • Geocortex Essentials workflows
  • Test your system to ensure that Adobe Connect and the virtual machine that you will be using during training can run successfully
  • We recommend using two monitors for an ideal learning experience

Please note: if you do not meet these requirements, you may be asked to postpone your training until these prerequisites are met.

Self-Directed Training
Need to fit training into your busy schedule?

The scheduled training below offers you an online, instructor-led classroom experience, but you can also take courses when they’re more convenient for you! Self-directed course delivery includes:

  • 2-3 consecutive days’ access (dependent on course) to a Geocortex training environment

Customer Reviews

"I used knowledge from the class the very next day in my workflows. I understand how workflows actually work much better than I did before."
Sean McClurkan
Application Consultant
"As someone who has recently been using Workflow Foundations for a few years, this course tied together a lot conceptually for me. It was well laid out and presented, and the course material was applicable to a lot of the work I have been doing. A must for anyone who is getting more involved in developing workflows."
