The cost of each workshop is $180. Per the workshop description:

"GIS 101: This three-day workshop has been designed and presented by DOR GIS staff to reinforce much of the material introduced in other GIS courses such as Introduction to ArcGIS I. The instruction is progressive, hands-on, delivered in the ArcMap 9.x environment and, is presented in the context of cadastral mapping. Geodatabase structure and creation as well as map editing and maintenance routines will be explored in class exercises. This workshop is intended for those who are familiar with ArcMap, but need to enhance their editing skills to be productive in a parcel mapping environment. Each student will receive a 512mb thumb drive containing class data and help topics."
