National Instruments offering online courses free

Responding to the coronavirus crisis, National Instruments has announced it will provide free access to all NI online training through April 30. The company will also offer virtual instructor-led learning experiences, modeled after its regional classroom training program, available to users at a reduced cost. 

“As the nature of our day-to-day lives shifts, NI is virtual, ready, and here to help navigate this new working environment. There are so many opportunities to push forward, to continue to improve and invent, and to emerge from this situation stronger than when we went in,” said Paul Hofstadler, NI vice president of global services, in a statement.

National Instruments’ online course curriculum is available to anyone around the clock. The curriculum includes courses such as Certified LabVIEW Developer and Architect. The courses are offered in six languages, including English, French, Spanish, simplified Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese.

“NI recognizes that many of our customers and colleagues, and the wider community, are experiencing distress,” Hofstadler continued. “We feel it’s important to connect them with expertise that empowers them to continue to engineer the extraordinary, despite the tremendous challenge we are all currently facing.”

While NI is offering free online training through the end of April, it will continue to evaluate the situation and consider how it can offer ongoing support to the global engineering community.
