NATIONAL Instruments has released an entry-level certification and an online preparation tool for professionals and students wanting to assess their proficiency in the NI LabVIEW graphical development environment.
LabVIEW users now can certify their programming expertise and gain recognition for career advancement and employment opportunities by becoming a Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD).
A prerequisite to the more rigorous Certified LabVIEW Developer exam, the CLAD exam is designed to assess LabVIEW users' abilities to develop effective test, measurement and automation applications.
The LabVIEW Fundamentals Exam covers the essentials of LabVIEW and can be taken online from any location, making it ideal for educational use. Academic professors can integrate the LabVIEW Fundamentals Exam into their curricula to validate their students' capabilities upon completion of a LabVIEW-based course and gain industry recognition for their training programs.
The one-hour, computer-based CLAD exam is administered worldwide through Pearson VUE testing centers and NI offices. For more information regarding the Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer exam, the LabVIEW Fundamentals exam or the NI certification program, readers can visit ni.com/training.
