Why I Use KnowGIS™ Training Series
The KnowGIS training series provides an excellent overview of ArcGIS desktop. It is a perfect "first class" and is a great class for sharpening existing skills and ideas.
Education is a prudent and an essential investment. Pervasive technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), demand highly trained personnel. As geographic information technology moves from innovation to maturity, our educational concerns will also increase. Many organizations are faced with the need for renewal in an age of constant change and innovation. Learning to use a GIS effectively, users must not only know how to use the software and hardware which the system is comprised but how geographic information is going to help them solve problems in their related field.
"Thanks Jere. Geeze Man, the KnowGIS 10 material is super duper. I had no idea. This was way more than I expected. Keep up the good work. Keep the free tutorials coming too. Are you making any advanced training - or kind of above intermediate level?"
Sarah P. Melbourne, Australia
"Hi Jere (aka my new hero, knight in shining armor), WOW! Your KnowGIS 10 training series is fantastic! I am finally understanding the foundational concepts of GIS and I am incredibly thankful for stumbling upon you on the internet. "

"Great Content. I'm learning a lot, fast! Thanks!"
" I love the way you teach this material. KnowGIS 10 is more than I expected. I've watched all 13 videos twice now. You helped me understand not only GIS concepts but ArcGIS Desktop. Please let me know if you create more videos. I want them."
Sally E.. Los Angeles, CA - United State
" KnowGIS 10 kit arrived earlier this week. (thanks for head phones too!). I finished watching first 5 lessons and wanted to thank you so much for making these vids. They are so good. I connect with your ways of teaching and presenting these materials. Much better than the boring stuff on other sites. You make this GIS materal exciting. - you are my hero !)

"Jere! OMG. I love your new KnowGIS 10 Training. Wholey Cow. You sure put a lot of effort into this. The concepts and ideas are so awesome. I finally get it! Than you so much."

"I have purchased the training DVD (KnowGIS) and it was really amazing and informative stuff. I must say that it was the most helpful training video that I've ever used. Thank you for your excellent service. I wonder if you have other more stuff, I am really curious to purchase it too. Please, if that is the case let me know".

"Mr. J Folgert. We very much like your tutorials for ArcGIS in Stockholm! We have used it to teach our staff at the University and it has helped very much. "
Lisa H - Stockholm Sweden
"Hi Jere, Just to inform you that I have received the training DVD. Thank you for your excellent service. I went through a few lessons yesterday. I must say that I’m most impressed by the quality of the video production, the cool animations and the materials covered. Good Stuff ! "
Steven W - Malaysia
"I have used the KnowGIS Training for ArcGIS Desktop. It was taught by Jere Folgert. The videos were entertaining as well as extremely informative. There is no comparison to learning software programs by watching these training programs and trying to figure it out on your own. I was able to watch the videos, then use ArcCatalog and ArcMap. I had very little initial difficulty after following along with these training sessions. Unlike attending a class, you can refer back to these disks now or a year from now, whenever the need arises. I only wish you made these training disks for every aspect and extension of ArcGIS!"

"We're pleased that KnowGIS Training is making its entry into the video training market with its exceptional in-depth video training content to help customers and college students quickly get up to speed and make the best use of the ArcGIS Desktop software."
Arthur D. - Billings, MT
"Regarding the KnowGIS Training package? In a word - Cool. Some of our staff had attended the certified ESRI courses (which are great too!) One advantage of the KnowGIS training series, is they can be watched when ever. I must say I'm impressed with the details and discussion of not just ArcGIS but of GIS concepts as well.. While I know enough ArcMap "to be dangerous", I still learned a lot. I'm loving it."
Dan G. - Portland, Maine - USA
"I think your training product is very good and recommend them to military and students for a few reasons... since they can't hire a teacher indefinitely, the KnowGIS training sets are an excellent way to learn and then review (reinforce) what they know and have learned. These training courses also get new users going on these complex ESRI products including many government employees - and many concepts can be watched over and over again. I make it a point to watch KnowGIS training sets after a few months of not using GIS!"
