ICON Technologies Services

Training: LabVIEW and Other

ICON Technologies offers a range of on-demand and scheduled training courses covering the National Instruments LabVIEW Platform, and related topics in measurement and automation. They are offered as a series of two-day, one-and-a-half day, one-day, or half-day modular units that can be mixed and matched to suit the needs and experience of different users.

 

All units are offered on-demand, with no minimum enrolment requirement. You can specify any combination of units, for as little as one person per unit, on a schedule that is negotiable. On-demand courses can be delivered at our own dedicated training facility, or at your premises. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

 

We make all our units available on-demand to maximise our capacity to meet the requirements of different users. But from time-to-time we may offer a combination of units on a regular schedule. Scheduled courses are offered at a slightly discounted rate, but are subject to minimum enrolments of 3 persons per unit. If we have a scheduled course coming up it will be listed on our news and events page.

 

If what you want isn't covered by our standard modular units, we can also design and deliver fully custom courses based on any of our LabVIEW Platform Support Service offerings.


Standard Training Modules

This Table lists all the standard training modules that we currently offer:

Course  Target Duration
NI System Diagnostics Technical staff who operate, maintain, and manage systems based on NI hardware and software 2 days
The Basics of Building a LabVIEW Application Beginner LabVIEW programmers 1½ days
Understanding Dataflow Beginner LabVIEW programmers 1 day
LabVIEW Development Top-Down Beginner LabVIEW programmers 1½ days
Transition to LabVIEW Experienced programmers in other languages (C, Java, etc.) moving to LabVIEW for the first time 1 day
Introduction to Data Acquisition Using NI-DAQmx Beginner/intermediate LabVIEW programmers who want to acquire data from NI hardware via NI DAQmx (CompactDAQ, PCI & PXI cards, USB devices, etc.) 1 day
Introduction to Data Acquisition Using NI CompactRIO Beginner/intermediate LabVIEW programmers who want to acquire data from NI CompactRIO hardware, or other RIO-class devices 1 day
Introduction to Device Communications Beginner/intermediate LabVIEW users who need to communicate with serial, GPIB and other devices using a command language ½ day
LabVIEW File IO Beginner/intermediate LabVIEW programmers who want a broad understanding of file IO ½ day
Transition to LabVIEW Real-Time Experienced LabVIEW programmers for Windows/Linux/macOS who are moving to LabVIEW for Real-Time targets for the first time ½ day

Courses include copies of presentation slides, plus LabVIEW source code for all demonstration examples from the course. To keep course costs down we require that attendees provide their own laptop/desktop PC with LabVIEW installed. ICON Technologies can assist with installing a trial copy of LabVIEW for users that may not have ready access to their workplace license.  Morning and afternoon teas are provided.

 

All on-demand courses are charged at a full-day equivalent rate of $1,260 (ex-GST) for the first attendee from any organisation, with a 50% discount for each subsequent attendee from the same organisation:

Unit Duration First Attendee (ex-GST) Subsequent attendees (ex-GST, 50% discount)
Two days $2,520 $1,260
One-and-a-half days $1,890 $945
One day $1,260 $630
Half day $630 $315

 

For beginning LabVIEW users with no previous experience, the following 3 courses provide a very good overview of the LabVIEW environment, and a practical framework to begin your own development journey:

  • The Basics of Building a LabVIEW Application
  • Understanding Dataflow
  • LabVIEW Development Top-Down

The unit NI System Diagnostics is specifically designed to meet the needs of users that will be managing one or more systems based on NI hardware and software, but have little or no requirement to learn the LabVIEW programming language.
