Re-training programme for redundant engineers

06 July 2009

National Instruments UK & Ireland has announced a programme to support engineers who have recently been made redundant, by greatly reducing the cost of NI LabVIEW training and certification.
For just £395, engineers can take two training courses and a certification exam (for example, LabVIEW Basics I & II, and the Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) Certification exam, which would currently be a saving of over £1,800).

Individual scheduled training courses at Newbury can be taken for £195.

The NI re-training programme for redundant engineers provides reduced priced LabVIEW certification that will increase engineer’s software development skills and help to boost their career potential with an additional professional qualification. Successful certification will see engineers join a growing band of over 3,000 certified professionals worldwide. Achieving certification through exams helps engineers and scientists differentiate themselves and offers employees a highly credible way to identify job candidates with relevant skills.

Robert Morton, National Instruments UK & Ireland Managing Director, said: “NI is pleased to be able to support engineers who have unfortunately been made redundant because of the current economic climate by investing in their training and development, empowering them with new certified skills for when the economy turns around”.

To qualify for the reduced price training, engineers should hold an Engineering degree and have been unemployed for less than six months. Other degrees or experience may qualify in some cases. Seats are assigned based on date and availability for a specific course, as well as complying with the prerequisites of the class. Attendees are responsible for their own travel expenses, meals and lodging.
