Finding a job in this economy is tough. LabVIEW certified individuals have the knowledge and experience to hit the ground running giving them an edge over their competition.

To help prepare U of I students for the future WebStore is offering a certified LabVIEW Training Boot Camp at the Urbana campus. Classes will be held Tuesday through Friday from 8:30am - 5:00pm. The Certified LabVIEW Assistant Developer (CLAD) exam will be given Friday afternoon.

The $25 enrollment fee includes attendance to all LabVIEW training sessions, a Student Edition Version of LabVIEW (expires May 2013), a LabVIEW training manual, and one attempt at CLAD certification.
