The Office of Special Programs and Continuing Education at the Colorado School of Mines, located in Golden, Colo., met the requirements to become an official National Instruments Certified Training Center. The center, which opened in July of 2002, offers certified training on a range of NI products, including LabVIEW graphical development software, data acquisition hardware, and TestStand test management software. Customers who attend classes at the center learn to use NI software and hardware to efficiently create test, measurement, and automation solutions in a broad spectrum of industrial and laboratory applications.

NI-certified instructors lead the courses at a dedicated computer laboratory on the school's campus.
