embedded and real time systems training and consultancy

About us

TheTrainingArm is an associate company of First Technology Transfer Limited (FTT).

Its purpose is to provide both public and onsite embedded systems training. In addition, it can provide consultancy and advice on the best use of embedded systems design, implementation and related technologies.

First Technology Transfer has been delivering advanced technical training courses for over 25 years. It was one of the early companies to deliver Linux training, including real time and embedded Linux. The key to FTT's success has been its adoption of Agile techniques to the development of cutting edge tailored courses. These courses have been developed in anticipation of training requirements for new and emerging technologies, often as a result of our own "futurology" forecasting skills, but, sometimes in response to challenges and requests from our customers.

Our courses are more often than not customised to match your project needs and the delegate experience. Focused training making use of practical examples relevant to your industry will enable your engineers to immediately apply new skills, become more effective team members and reach vital project milestones.

Currently much of our research and development effort is focused on emerging embedded systems and real time technologies. Application areas that we are exploring include C++ embedded and real time programming for ARM CortexM, AVR32 and PIC32 based systems, programming of multicore ARM CortexM devices as well as Internet of Things (IoT) courses.

We are also extending the range of courses we offer for teachers involved in STEAM teaching and curriculum development. STEM - Science, Technolog, Engineering and Maths. Many of our instructors come from scientific backgrounds and have then pursued careers in computing and real time applications development. As a result we have tailored courses for various industry specific applications e.g. bomb disposal robot software development, building control systems developers, developers of switched mode power supplies, drilling data acquisition and signal processing applications and even signal processing for sonar and ultrasound applications development.

As well as providing training courses we can also provide consultancy, mentoring and software development services.

We are always open to ideas and proposals for new training courses. If you are an experienced trainer or consultant, or are actively engaged in PhD or Postdoctoral research in cutting edge technologies and would like to become involved in training and consulting please do get in touch with us.

As a European training company we are particularly interested in trainers and consultants who, in addition to technical English are fluent in one or more other languages e.g. Spanish, French, German, Polish , Italian, Greek, Dutch ... and who would be interested in teaching our courses in their mother countries.
