Where are training courses held?
Public courses are hosted at one of our regional support centers. For remote courses you can choose where your students should join the course. They will need access to a computer or laptop with a live internet connection and headphones or speakers. For private courses, generally we will come to your office to deliver a training course specifically for your team. We will happily travel to just about anywhere in the world. So far, we have trained on every continent except Antarctica and are open to any opportunities to complete the set!
Who teaches your training courses?
Our training courses are all taught by ARM experts. The majority of our instructors are drawn from our global customer support teams and have years of experience between them of dealing with the kind of issues customers face every day. We will usually send two instructors to each course.
Is there a course near me?
To see if there's a course near you, take a look at our current public course schedule. If you don't see the course you're interested in, please contact us with your requirement. You may prefer to book a live remote training course so your students can join a training course without the need to travel. For private courses, we will generally come to your office to deliver a training course specifically for your team. It doesn't matter where you are - we can generally get to you!
We only have a small team - can we still get trained?
Our standard private training package is for classes of fifteen or more students. If you have fewer than this, you can either arrange a remote course or check out our public course schedule to see if the course you need is currently scheduled. You should also feel free to look up our Approved Training Center network and see if one of them has a course scheduled suitably.
Are your courses suitable for beginners?
Almost all of our courses are suitable for those who don't have prior ARM experience. There are a few exceptions though. Generally, our courses for the Cortex-A range of processors assume prior knowledge of the ARMv7-A architecture. If you don't have that prior experience, we can provide some introductory training to get you up to speed before the main course. Please ask for details if you think this might apply to you.
Can I customize the agenda?
For private courses and remote courses, yes, we can customize any of our courses to suit your needs. We can't guarantee to be able to meet every requirement, though, so please make sure you speak to us well in advance about any specific needs you have.
Do you provide lunch on training courses?
For courses which are hosted in our offices we will provide lunch and refreshments every day.
Are your Hardware Design courses suitable for board-level design?
No. Our "Hardware Design" courses are intended for engineers who are designing Systems-on-Chip or other silicon devices using ARM's IP. For support on designing using a specific product from one of our partners, you need to refer to the supplier or manufacturer.
What should I study before attending a course?
Can you deliver a training course at our offices?
For private courses, we can come to your office and deliver the training course of your choice directly to you. With live remote training your students can join the training course from their location. If you have students in multiple locations they can join the same training course.
How long do your courses last?
This varies. Private and public courses are typically either three or four days, depending on the specific subject being covered. We can usually shorten courses slightly if you're pressed for time and, in some cases, can add some supplementary material if time allows.
Remote courses can last anywhere between two hours and two days. One- and two-day courses are delivered over multiple four-hour sessions in a two week period.
What software tools do you use for practicals?
We use ARM's DS-5 software development tools. If you aren't using these, don't worry as the techniques and concepts we teach will be useful to any software developer, no matter what tools you're actually using.
Do your courses contain hands-on sessions?
Many of our private and public software courses contain hands-on practical exercises and you will need to provide PCs for these. Generally, one machine for every two students is sufficient. We will provide all the software you need to install. Our Hardware Design courses don't contain any practical exercises, due to the difficulty in accessing the necessary tools and restrictions on distributing ARM's IP.
Can I get ARM technology training from other companies?
Yes, you can. ARM supports a network of Approved Training Centers which covers most regions. There will almost certainly be one near you and it may be a company you already use for some of your existing training requirements.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Generally, courses are paid for by issuing a company Purchase Order. In some circumstances, we can accept payment by credit card but please do check with us in advance if this is something you think you might need to do.
How soon can I book a training course?
ARM training is very popular and our instructor team is in huge demand all over the world. You can book public courses here. For private courses, lead times are around four to six weeks for most courses. For remote training we can often be more flexible, and may be able to provide a course at short notice. If you have time constraints, the earlier you start talking to us, the better.
Can I video the course?
No, we don't allow this.
Can I have remote teams dial into a private training course?
While we believe that a huge amount of the value you can get from attending one of our courses comes from being able to discuss your work with an ARM expert face-to-face, we recognize that it is sometimes not possible to get all your team members together in one place. If you need to use video conferencing to get the class together, this is usually acceptable provided we are able to discuss the arrangements in advance. We want to be able to maximize the value for both remote and local students.
What equipment do I need for remote training?
Each student will need access to a computer or laptop with a live broadband internet connection and headphones or speakers. It is also possible for a number of students to join together from a conference room with a suitably large display screen. In this case, only one computer would be needed but interactivity with the instructor may be slightly reduced.
For remote training, can you deliver the training at a time to suit us?
Yes, while the instructors will be based in the UK, we are very flexible and will try to arrange for the training to be on a date and time to suit you.
