Education and Training
Take a class from a GIS Professional who has taught thousands of students in GIS!
Teaching and course development in ArcGIS are primary objectives of Mr. Kessler's life and business. It's hard to find a teacher more dedicated, experienced, qualified and energetic. It really shows when he's in front of a class.
Following is a recent recommendation:
Bruce Kessler, MS, GISP, CTT+

"It has been my pleasure working with Bruce Kessler, of Kessler GIS, for almost two years, developing relevant GIS course materials and presentations, both on-site and internet based classes for internal Idaho Transportation Department personnel. Mr. Kessler has consistently produced very high quality courses and materials that have been highly rated by our employees. These courses have allowed our personnel to quickly gain the knowledge and put it directly to work for our organization. Our employees report enjoying these courses and have quickly progressed under his instruction. I look forward to working with Mr. Kessler in developing and providing more high quality, high impact courses over the coming years. He is definitely one of the best and most professional GIS instructors in the industry and I highly recommend his services."

# 206: Primorsky Stairs, a stairway of 192 steps is a formal entrance from the direction of the Black Sea into which European city?
Answer: The steps were made famous in Sergei Eisenstein's 1925 silent film The Battleship Potemkin; according to the fictionalized account in that film, soldiers opened fire on the people on the stairs on June 14, 1905. After the Soviet revolution, in 1955 the Primorsky Stairs were renamed Potemkin Stairs to honor the 50th anniversary of the Battleship Potemkin uprising. After Ukrainian independence, the Potemkin Stairs, like many streets in Odessa, were given back their original name, the Primorsky Stairs.

"The instructor [Bruce] was very knowledgeable and brought real world examples of when and how certain aspects of the training would apply to us. Well done!" Louis Miller -- Ferry County Washington Public Works
"The class filled in a lot of blanks for me and Bruce's understanding of the software and its architecture was critical to my satisfaction with this course. I plan on taking another course to add to my knowledge base." Connie Grove -- GIS Specialist -- Spokane County/City of Spokane
