I thought ThreadX was easy to use. Why do I need training?

ThreadX is widely regarded as a fast, mature, and stable RTOS. We have carefully crafted ThreadX to provide the engineer with a powerful, elegant, and simple RTOS for project development. Although using ThreadX is intuitive and straightforward, our training course can help you achieve the most from your investment. We have used our extensive experience in embedded systems to design a training program tailored to your needs.

Training is too expensive and I can’t afford to take time off. Why can’t I learn the same concepts on my own?

Although it is possible that you can learn the same material on your own, it will probably take you much longer and you may miss many important features and techniques. Training will reduce the time required for you to optimize the features of ThreadX, thus reducing the cost of your project. We have committed significant resources in preparing a first-rate training experience for you. Thus, the training course will provide you with focused development insight in a short period of time. If you cannot attend the training course, consider hosting an on-site course.

I’m convinced that training is essential – how do I convince my boss?

Tell him/her that time is money! As a result of this training course, you will get up to speed quickly, significantly enhance the prospects of success for your project, and substantially reduce the time-to-market for your project. Training will also help you to optimize your investment in the premier RTOS for deeply embedded systems.

Are the training sessions strictly lecture-based, or is there a hands-on component?

The training sessions consist of a pedagogically sound combination of lectures and hands-on embedded systems lab projects. The lab projects complement and reinforce the ThreadX and RTOS concepts discussed in the lecture. A multimedia approach is used, and the material is presented in an engaging, but fast-moving format.

What background should I have in order to take the ThreadX training course?

You should have several years of C/C++ programming experience and some exposure to embedded systems development.
