The 5-day Niagara 4 Technical Certification Training aims to educate students to a minimum level of technical expertise to effectively and efficiently design, engineer, and program projects using the Niagara 4 Framework. Live demonstrations and remote access to lab panels will allow the instructor-led virtual learning experience to be as close to the in-person experience as possible. Students who pass the testing at the end of the class will be Niagara 4 certified and receive an official Tridium Niagara 4 certificate.

Class Logistics Notes:
Please note that the training will still take place from 8:00-5:00 pm Monday through Friday (Friday, students will be done when the test is completed). We encourage the students to use their webcam to allow for better interaction and communication in the virtual environment (though this is not a requirement!). Please do not hesitate to ask questions during the class! This can be done using the Chat or Q&A Panels in the training software or verbally.
This course is intended for Systems Integrators, OEMs, Business Partners and Distributors who have contracted explicitly with Tridium to sell and service the Niagara 4 Framework.

A basic introduction to Niagara (Niagara Operations) can prepare less experienced users and operators, which will better prepare these students for the Niagara 4 Technical Certification course. If you are unfamiliar with Niagara or need to gain controls/programming experience, we suggest you take this class before enrolling in the Niagara 4 Certification class.
