Course Requirements

SkySpark Engineer is for complete beginners. To complete this training you will need internet access and a browser.

No prior knowledge of SkySpark or Axon is required; however it is beneficial to have access to an installation of SkySpark for further practice in project building. A login for the documentation on the SkyFoundry website is also beneficial.

Bonus Material

For anyone who has access to their own SkySpark installation, we've provided bonus training material for extra project building practise!

Follow along with our "Try It Yourself" exercises, as we build the Arcadia Project during the course. Use a SkySpark connector and bind actual points in your training project from our provided source device.

With our free SkySpark extension, the Arcadia Toolkit, you can load our ready-made Axon functions and work through creating Rules.

Select a training course module and automatically populate your training project with model data and records. You can skip ahead, go back, or start over again from any level!

When you complete the SkySpark Engineer course, you'll gain access to the ENGINEER JOURNAL course companion! So even after the training has finished, you can still refer to the practical exercises from the course, connect to our source device, AND use the Arcadia Toolkit, to practise building the Arcadia Project in your own time.

Scenarios and story, interactive questions, structure and pace, using SkySpark / Axon

I loved the course! It was an extremely helpful tool to introduce how to use SkySpark. The teaching of the material was in depth and the examples provided helped me to see what I needed to review over again.

Along with that, the story provided with the course was funny and helped to engage me in the lessons.

I definitely recommend this course to anyone who has never had any SkySpark experience before and would like to strengthen their skills.
