National Instruments: Getting Started with NI LabVIEW Student Training

This student training provides an introduction to basic programming in LabVIEW software through three methods of learning: tutorial, video, and exercises. The tutorial and video cover the same topics, so use whichever you prefer – both offer the fundamental concepts you need to get started. The training begins with the video and/or tutorial followed by the corresponding exercises to test your foundational understanding of the topic and help you explore the topic in more detail.

Required Software for Exercises
• NI LabVIEW 8.5 or later

If you do not currently have NI LabVIEW 8.5 or later installed on your computer, you can download the NI LabVIEW Evaluation Version to use for the training.
