The training day runs from 9:00 am-5:00 pm (but arrival at or soon after 8:30 is recommended) and expected class sizes are around 6 students.
Lunch plus morning tea, and all day coffee/tea, water, snacks, etc are included.
Participants are required to bring their own laptop (or PC) with ArcGIS Pro 1.0 installed and licensed, and to have tested that their configuration is working disconnected from any internet connection prior to attending the training. If your laptop is able to access a public internet then wireless is available to browse online help etc, but this is NOT required for any of the exercises.
Only a Basic license level with no extensions is required.
Whether your laptop (or PC) meets the Minimum (and preferably Recommended) specification can be checked against the ArcGIS Pro System Requirements page which includes a test which can be run to Check your computer's ability to run ArcGIS Pro. The training venue will provide a large monitor, keyboard, mouse and internet access.
Bringing your own laptop and ArcGIS license enables us to deliver this training for $599 (inc GST) which is discounted from its RRP of $750. If you have some of your own data on your laptop you will be able to re-run exercises of interest against that while still in the classroom. It also lets you know that all course exercises can be revised later in your office or at home!
