Advanced Arduino Programming Training Course

Course Code



14 hours (usually 2 days including breaks)


  • Basic familiarity with Arduino
  • Basic programming experience
  • A general understanding of embedded systems
  • Familiarity with C/C++ programming


  • Beginner developers
  • Hardware/software technicians
  • Technical persons in all industries
  • Hobbyists


Arduino is an open-source, single-board, microcontroller for building devices that can sense and control objects in the physical world.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to program the Arduino using advanced techniques as they step through the creation of a simple sensor alert system.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how Arduino works.
  • Dig deep into the main components and functionalities of Arduino.
  • Program the Arduino without using the Arduino IDE.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.

Course Customization Options

  • Arduino is available in different models and supports different programming interfaces (C, C++, C#, Python) and IDEs (Arduino IDE, Visual Studio, etc.). The following will be used for this course:
    • Arduino Uno board
    • Arduino IDE
    • Arduino language (based on C/C++)
  • *** Participants are responsible for purchasing their own Arduino hardware and components! ***
  • To request a different setup, please contact us to arrange.
