Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD)

The Online Test ( 2016 - )


My personal Experience

  • 2011-2015, “National Instruments Germany” offerted free paper-based CLAD tests at their events “Labview Anwendertag” and “Labview Day”. Since 2016, there are just online CLAD tests, so that “National Instruments Germany” must discontinue its free offer. There might be rebate offers for event particpants for the future.
  • “To pass the CLAD exam, a score of 70% must be achieved”. That's hard, remember at college test you usually pass with 50%, while 70% is a real exception from my experience. Me as LabVIEW user on the level of an “advanced beginner” ( which I was not able to upgrade to a “professional user” due to missing work experience in LabVIEW-specific projects ), I participated in the free CLAD test 2011-2015 and got test results 50%, 65%, 55%, 35%, 52.50%, 50%, 65%, 52.50%.
  • So be warned to spend money on that CLAD test if it isn`t free...
  • The only advantage of online tests prior of paper tests might be that you can save the questions as “screenshots”...
