ICON Technologies Services

Training: LabVIEW and Other

ICON Technologies offers a range of training courses covering the National Instruments LabVIEW Platform and related topics in measurement and automation. We have our own dedicated training facility, although all courses can also be delivered at your premises, subject to minimum enrolments.

We offer courses in two broad areas that complement the standard LabVIEW training courses offered directly by National Instruments (NI):

  • Management and maintenance of NI-based systems
  • LabVIEW special topics

Our regular courses are typically offered as a series of two-day, one-day, or half-day modules that can be mixed and matched to suit the needs and experience of different users. Delivery of regular courses is subject to minimum enrolments, typically 3 or more persons per topic/course.

We can also design and deliver fully custom courses based on any of our LabVIEW Platform Support Service offerings.

Management and Maintenance of NI-Based Systems

This modular course is aimed at technical and engineering staff that are required to operate and maintain measurement systems based on the NI LabVIEW Platform.

Most operators of NI-based systems will be running LabVIEW application code that has been created by a third-party - either an external system supplier, or an internal company developer that is not involved in the day-to-day operation of the system. If the system has been well-designed and properly commissioned none of the day-to-day operational and maintenance issues will relate to the LabVIEW source code.  These operators do not need formal LabVIEW training.

Most day-to-day operational and maintenance issues will be related to the measurement system hardware, the sensors and sensor cabling, network configuration, and driver and operating system software.  This course is designed to equip operators of NI-based systems with the knowledge and skills to correctly diagnose these types of issues, and maintain the system in optimum condition.
