Deploying and Maintaining a Multiuser Database
This course prepares you to successfully create a multiuser geodatabase to store and manage your organization's geographic data. You will learn about the multiuser geodatabase architecture, configuration options and techniques to efficiently load data, assign user privileges and maintain database performance over time. Course concepts apply to both enterprise and workgroup geodatabases. During course exercises, you may work with the RDBMS product that is relevant for your organization (Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server or PostgreSQL).

Mastering ArcPy
This course builds on the concepts taught in Introduction to Geoprocessing Scripts Using Python. It delves deeper into the ArcPy site package and introduces new ways to distribute scripts. The course uses a combination of lectures, demonstrations and exercises to show how to use Python to work with the map document and the geodatabase while demonstrating how Python scripts can be used when working with ArcGIS Server.
