Niagara 4 - Technical Certification Program (Virtual TCP)
Cochrane Tech Services is pleased to offer special discounted pricing during the COVID-19 pandemic for all instructor-led virtual training classes. It is our goal to give BAS industry professionals enhanced opportunities to learn new skills and further their education during this time.
The goal of the 5-day, Niagara 4 Technical Certification Training is to educate students to a basic 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 will receive an official Tridium Niagara 4 certificate and 4 CEUs.

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). Students should be in a distraction free environment to make sure that they are able to focus during the session. We encourage the students to occasionally use their webcam if possible 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.
