Keck & Wood now authorized to teach ArcGIS 10 Desktop Classes

Keck & Wood is excited to announce we are now able to offer the ArcGIS Desktop I, II and III classes for ArcGIS 10. ArcGIS 10 is the newest release of ESRI’s well know GIS software. This new release features improved editing, enhancements to data management and as well as many other improvements.

Keck & Wood understands many organizations have a large investment in custom applications or mission critical needs which will not allow them to upgrade immediately. So we will also continue to offer classes based on the ArcGIS Desktop 9.3 platform.
