Previously, we could disclose that National Instruments (NI) has chosen us to offer courses and certification exams for LabVIEW and TestStand. A new chapter, we have started in earnest this week when offering an extended TestStand course that can be finished with a Certified TestStand Developer (CTD) Certification for those who are not already certified.
A Three-day TestStand Course for GPower’s Developers
“Developing Test Programs Using TestStand”. This is the title of the course that our Certified Professional Instructor, Jens Christian Andersen, has presided over the past three days. As a result of the course, our developers have acquired an even stronger underlying basis in order to develop advanced test concepts with TestStand in interaction with LabVIEW. An underlying basis, we need to a greater extent in future, as we see an increasing demand for this type of projects.
However, as we solve lots of different projects regarding test, measurement, and control, a great diversity among our employees in relation to theoretical background and practical experience is a determining factor for us. So, regardless of whether you had little or lots of experience with TestStand in theory before the course, the course has resulted in a common skill set that leads to even stronger and safer, high-quality solutions.
From TestStand Course to CTD Certification
At the end of the course, the developers, who are not already certified, will have the opportunity to take a CTD certification. This certification can subsequently be supplemented with a CTA (Certified TestStand Architect) Certification as appears from the illustration.
At present, we have not set up future dates for certification exams, but we will keep you up to date on LinkedIn, so you will have the opportunity to participate next time we are holding NI’s certification exams.
