Are you a lab instructor sitting at home right now? Have you completed some Cadence Online Training courses for your education and earned Digital Badges for personal promotion and spicing up your CV on LinkedIn? Well done! You can go even further and become a Cadence Academic Network Certified Instructor, and, if your lab colleagues do the same, the whole lab will become a Cadence Academic Network Certified Lab. Sounds cool, but what are the other benefits? Let Professor Marek Wójcikowski from Gdansk University of Technology explain:
When you become a Certified Lab, the Cadence Academic Network co-organizes an event with the lab, with press attendance and promotion on various Cadence media channels. Your university will be recognized for collaborating with and getting promoted by a Fortune500 company. Your students, current and future ones, will see that when they attend lectures in your lab and do the hands-on training there, they get access to the latest tools and design flows and are being educated on industry-grade technology. This will improve their career path, since they can include on their CVs the fact that they were educated in a Cadence Academic Network Certified Lab.
So, you’re convinced now, what’s the next step? First, choose which area you want to be certified:
Being certified in each topic will require you to complete 4-5 Online Training courses, most of which are entry level, but don’t underestimate the time and effort it will take to accomplish all the trainings. After finishing the Online Training courses, please let us know, we will verify and issue you a certificate. If your whole lab gets certified, then we will present the lab with a nice plaque to be displayed at your university. In order to be enrolled, write an email to email@example.com to get a Cadence support account created and self-enroll in the required courses for the certification you are interested in!
