Academy Courses

The Verification Academy is organized into a collection of free online courses, which we also refer to as modules, focusing on various key aspects of advanced functional verification. Each course module consists of multiple sessions—allowing the participant to pick and choose specific topics of interest, as well as revisit any specific topics for future reference.

After completing a specific course or module, the participant should be armed with enough knowledge to then understand the necessary steps required for maturing their own organization’s skills and infrastructure on the specific topic of interest. The Verification Academy will provide you with a unique opportunity to develop an understanding of how to mature your organization’s processes so that you can then reap the benefits that advanced functional verification offers.
