The LabVIEW Academy program


provides academic institutions with a
classroom curriculum package that Experience

supports both credit and noncredit


courses. The costs to your students will
be what you normally charge for Better Career
tuition. Once you have purchased the Opportunities
materials and equipment ,you may
offer the course as many times as you
LabVIEW
like. A successful LabVIEW Academy Certification
can become revenue generating for
the Institute itself.
