Esri Virtual Campus Training

The USC campus site license for Esri GIS software products includes an Esri Virtual Campus Training Subscription. This subscription entitles USC faculty, staff, and students to free, unlimited access to online courses at Esri’s Virtual Campus. These courses are short (generally 2-4 hours), web-based course modules modeled on the key workflows that Esri users employ.

The catalog of Esri Virtual Campus courses is published here.

To request an access code for a free registration, please email Andrea Macko, Spatial Sciences Institute fiscal administrator, from your USC email account with the information about the course in which you are interested. Please do not email anyone at Esri to request this access code. You will receive the access code from Esri and can then proceed with your course registration.
