This thread lists free as in $0 workshops in GIS and related fields that have their material available to view or download online. The list is not limited to FOSS GIS, as GISers usually use a combination of open and closed source tools to accomplish their tasks. Some of these tools are easier than others and some are better documented. This list will be a great benefit to the community especially for new comers to the field.

General GIS

Open-source GIS

ESRI Products

Transportation

These links include either theoretical or applied transportation knowledge in transportation planning

Disaster Management

Databases

Geo Statistics

Are we talking about (forthcoming?) events or web materials from past workshops? –  radek Nov 24 '11 at 14:35

@radek I was thinking more along the lines of existing documentation that individuals can download and do on their own free time. But if it's forthcoming and the material will be available for download later then I see no issue with that. –  dassouki Nov 24 '11 at 14:39
    
The link "Three years worth of webinars and workshops on Transportation Modeling" does not help -- it goes to a "404-File not found" notice. –  Catlike Feb 4 at 0:40

Though there may also be other lecture series at different University websites, the UNBC site has some good content, particularly for beginning users:

http://www.gis.unbc.ca/courses/geog204/index.php

Other courses besides GEOG 204 are listed in the menu on the left-hand side.

Along the same lines as academic content (rather than workshops per se, but still useful), Google books has a number of free items related to GIS:
