Esri Technical Certification

Esri® is the global market leader in geographic information systems (GIS) and offers the most powerful mapping and analytics technology available. Since 1969 Esri has helped customers unlock the full potential of data to improve operational and business results. Today, Esri’s ArcGIS® software is deployed in more than 350,000 organizations including the world’s largest cities, most national governments, 75% of the Fortune 500, and more than 7,000 colleges and universities.

The Esri Technical Certification Program was created to establish a community of qualified individuals proficient in the best practices for using Esri software. As geospatial technology becomes an integral component of enterprise systems throughout government and the private sector, organizations increasingly see the value of certifying their workforce. The Esri Technical Certification program has expanded to meet this need by offering a new entry-level exam for individuals with less than two years broad experience using ArcGIS Desktop.
