Free LabVIEW workshops will be held at IdeaSquare (building 3179) starting on the 6th of August from 18:00 till 20:00 for 6 Mondays in a row for students and anyone who would like to learn LabVIEW. Beginners level, no prerequisites required. For students, by students.


Why LabVIEW? Because it’s a visual, graphical way of programming, very different from text based programming.

Why after working hours? Because it’s not meant to impact other work or training you are doing.

Why in IdeaSquare? Because it’s a creative environment also used for hackathons and FabLab work.

Dear EDMS Users and EDMS Local Administrators,


We would like to inform you about the recent changes in the EDMS Training programme.

Following successful pilot sessions in 2017, we decided to shorten both the Introduction Training and the Local Administrator training to half-day and one day respectively. We encourage you to use and promote these sessions not only to train the newcomers, but also to refresh the general knowledge of EDMS in your groups.

The courses’ dates and place availability is published in the CTA: CERN EDMS - Introduction , CERN EDMS for Local Administrators


You can find more information about the training and self-learning on our Service Pages.


Best regards,

The EDMS Team




In the beginning of 2017, all people who work at CERN and are trainers in one of the CERN Learning Programmes were asked to complete a survey. Following the analysis of the results, the CERN Learning Board decided that a “Training for trainers” would be a response to a large part of the issues raised, and recommended to organise a pilot session, which took place in the Autumn.


Following the positive feedback, and after some minor adjustments, we are happy to be able to propose now this course to all present and future trainers.
We are also happy to propose you this training free of charge for your department.


You will find here are the details about this course, and a link to enrol :

Train the Trainer’


For 2018, 2 sessions are planned :

  • 17-18 May in English
  • 27-28 September in French


We hope you will enjoy this opportunity !
