By Siemens Xcelerator Academy

User conferences are a great way to network and learn from your peers.  This year, for the first time, we are excited to offer our users a chance to join in the day before U2U Silicon Valley and attend one or both of our live Technical Training Sessions scheduled on April 3, 2024.  Our industry experts in “Functional Verification” and “Design for Test” will help you learn new technical tips to help increase your productivity with Siemens EDA tools and solutions. You will also have a chance to claim a digital badge certification.  Each training session, held in lecture format, will last for three hours. If you think 3 hours is not enough to train on these topics, you are right!!   Each participant will receive a free subscription for the full self-paced training course covered during these sessions. That will enable users to learn the entire topic and perform hands-on labs in our virtual cloud-based environment – no need to install and set up the software – normally a $2500 value is provided only to registered U2U attendees who sign up for one or both training sessions before U2U.

Do not miss the early bird registration, which ends on Friday, March 1.  Space is limited and filling up fast. Each training will be offered twice, once each in the morning and afternoon of April 3, 2024, at Santa Clara Marriott. You can sign up for one or both training sessions during the U2U registration process by following this link
