Sixclear has revealed that its Lucid LabVIEW Fundamentals Training will now be available to the participants of the FIRST Robotics Competition for no extra cost. For the past 22 years, the worldwide high school FIRST Robotics Competition has been sponsored by a large number of technology organizations. The latest to join the sponsors is the Austin-based provider of LabVIEW training and development, Sixclear.
In a statement, Brian Spears, Developer, Sixclear LabVIEW Courses said, “We were contacted recently by a FIRST team in Minnesota. They were using LabVIEW to control their robot and asked for a little help getting their young developers up to speed on a shoestring budget. One word came to mind: free.”
According to Spears, FIRST Robotics’ aim is to motivate awareness and accomplishment in science and technology, which is also in line with Sixclear’s objectives. Spears added that the organization’s LabVIEW training will assist a student in winning the competition and also offer very useful skills for a life span of technical achievement.
According to Spears, users can appear for the National Instruments Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer, or CLAD Exam, after undergoing the Sixclear Lucid LabVIEW Fundamentals Training. The CLAD exam aims to concentrate on developing LabVIEW code on a Microsoft Windows machine. The robots utilized by FIRST participants, however, run the code on a National Instruments cRIO controller.
Spears said, “If the competitors are using LabVIEW, they’ll need some LabVIEW basics training like we offer anyway, then we can point them in the right direction to get further guidance on developing LabVIEW code on a cRIO platform.”
FIRST Participants are urged by Spears to fill out the Sixclear FIRST Robotics LabVIEW Training registration form in order to access the courses.
LabVIEW training, development, incorporation, and consulting in the automation, test, measurement, and data acquisition arenas are offered by Sixclear. Sixclear offers the solitary completely self-paced web-based LabVIEW training.
FIRST, a not-for-profit organization offers accessible, ground-breaking programs, which encourages the youth to follow education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math.
