Earlier this week I was at Embedded World when ARM announced the launch of live remote training, which is the delivery of training courses via live web conferencing to any location.
ARM has provided face to face training for many years. We understand how difficult it can sometimes be to get an engineering team together for a face to face training course, especially if the engineers are in different countries. Live remote training allows engineers in different locations to easily attend the same training course. Importantly, the training continues to be instructor led so students can interact and ask questions.
Live remote training is ideal for smaller groups, from two engineers upwards, so it can be a cost-effective method of training. We can arrange courses at short notice and the content can be customized to suit your training requirements. We can give you guidance on which training modules to choose to maximize your training investment.
Courses can be anything from two hours to two days long. We suggest that longer courses are broken into shorter two or four hour sessions and delivered over an extended period, so the training is more beneficial to the student.
A range of live remote training courses are available including a two hour course introducing ARMv8-A architecture, a one day advanced course on virtualization and a selection of two day courses covering ARM NEON™ and ARM CoreSight™ debug and trace technology. View the complete list of live remote training courses. If the course you need isn't listed, please get in touch with us and we will do our best to put together a custom agenda for you.
Initially the courses will be taught in English, but we expect to support other languages, including Mandarin, at a later date.
Each student will need access to a computer or laptop with a live broadband internet connection and headphones or speakers. It is also possible for a number of students to log in together from a conference room with a suitably large display screen. In this case, only one computer would be needed but interactivity with the instructor may be slightly reduced. As with our well-known face to face training, students will receive a training manual and a certificate of attendance.
I am very excited about the additional opportunities which this offers the wider ARM community to gain access to the kind of training which has, so far, only been accessible to our larger customers and to those with large training budgets. Since the announcement, we have already seen enquiries from customers all over the world, which is evidence that there is a real thirst for knowledge about ARM and we are excited about helping to meet that need.
Imagine getting trained from ARM without leaving your desk!
