ROCHESTER, NY – EMA Design Automation today announced the launch of a training program for displaced printed circuit board designers and engineers.
The program provides free Cadence OrCAD training to out-of-work engineers and designers currently seeking employment.
“We created this program to offer assistance to those looking for an edge in this fiercely competitive job market,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “Getting up-to-date training with the latest OrCAD and Allegro tools gives engineers more options when applying for new positions.”
All EMA training classes are taught by professional instructors with many years of hands-on industry experience. Instructors guide students through the latest design techniques and features within the OrCAD PCB design tools. Because of the widespread presence of OrCAD within the industry, engineers with this training will have a definite advantage in this difficult job market. Also, employers will recognize the value of applicants having the most up-to-date knowledge in these universal tools.
Dwayne Riley, a student in the pilot program, describes this in his job-seeking experience: “I make sure to point out in interviews that I took these classes. I think it’s going to be a great card for me in my job search and that’s why I pursued it.”
Classes are offered in select cites, and if students are unable to attend classroom sessions, training is also available virtually. EMA's virtual classroom training is completed over the Internet with a live instructor. The classes currently offered include: OrCAD Capture, OrCAD Capture CIS, Analog Simulation with PSpice, OrCAD PCB Editor (based on Allegro Technology), PSpice Advanced Analysis, and Advanced PCB Editor.
“EMA is thrilled to offer this new program and expects students who complete the courses to see many benefits in their job search,” Marcano said. “We encourage those who qualify for the program to apply online for consideration. You will be asked to submit a current resume to validate employment status and to fill out a short form.”
