Real Training, in Real Time, from Real Engineers
The PTR Group operates a worldwide training organization specializing in embedded technologies such as embedded Linux, Android™, multi-core processing, IPv6 networking and virtualization. The PTR Group is very active in the embedded Linux and Android™ communities. These activities include participation in discussion panels at industry trade shows, providing seminars on deployment techniques for open source operating systems, providing embedded engineering training for major commercial vendors, and numerous development efforts utilizing custom-built Linux/Android solutions, as well as standard distributions such as Yocto, Linaro, Ubuntu and others.
As regular presenters at such venues as the DesignWest (formerly Embedded Systems) Conference, Embedded Linux Conference, Android Builders Summit and numerous emerging technologies conferences, PTR Group personnel have distinguished themselves by receiving excellent ratings for both our content and presentation style. In addition to presentations at large venues, PTR Group personnel are also well known authors, having written articles for such publications as Military and Aerospace Electronics, Audio Design Magazine, Embedded Intel Magazine, Embedded Design Magazine and IEEE Today’s Engineer.
We believe that proper training from experienced professionals is a critical component in the development of any quality engineering organization. Our custom, modular courses are designed to get our customers’ engineering teams up to peak performance in a minimal amount of time. Our classes are tailored to their specific needs, so they can maximize their training dollars to achieve effective results. But our instructors do more than just teach classes. Each instructor is a real engineering professional, typically with over 20 years of embedded and real-time engineering experience. We take this depth of knowledge into the classroom and apply it to each customer’s problem space.
Our training courses include comprehensive and deep technical exploration, but at the same time each technology is presented in the context in which it is used in the real world. Lab exercises reinforce concepts presented in lecture, and give students the hands-on experience that they take and use in their own development projects.Current PTR Group Course Offerings include:
- Linux Development Fundamentals
- Linux Administration
- Introduction to Embedded Linux
- Embedded Linux Advanced Debugging
