ARM to launch Accredited Engineer programme at TechCon
ARM is to launch an Accredited Engineer programme at the ARM TechCon 2012 meeting in Santa Clara on October 30th to Nov 1st.
The idea started in Taiwan where local OEMs told ARM that it would be helpful if there were training courses to acclimatise engineers to ARM.
This is becoming particularly necessary with ARM branching out into new areas like computing, servers and microcontrollers.
So ARM devised the ARM Accredited Engineer Programme (AAEP) for which the syllabus can be downloaded from the ARM web-site.
The first exposure of engineers to the AAEP will be at TechCon.
“At TechCon we’ll give a day’s free training and a second day talking about the programme,” Paul Elbro, v-p and general manager of ARM Services, tells EW.
To get the accreditation, ARM has devised an exam which will be administered by Prometric.
The intention is that third party training companies will train engineers for OEMs wanting to have their engineers exposed to ARM technology.
ARM is also embarking on a related series of techological symposia for which the dates and places are listed on the ARM web-site under the tag ‘Events’.
