Required Materials:

Students will have the best experience if they locally have equipment for performing the programming exercises. However, remote connection to equipment at Campbell Scientific is available for all who need it.

Equipment available via remote connection:

  • CR1000X datalogger (also CR310 and CR6 dataloggers)
  • Pair of thermocouples
  • Small LED
  • HygroVUE5 - Temperature and Humidity Sensor
  • 03002 - Wind Speed and Wind Direction Sensor
  • Power Supply

Recommended list of local equipment:

  • Campbell Scientific data logger with CRBasic support (ex: CR300, CR6, or CR1000X) and appropriate power supply
  • Two thermocouples
  • Small LED with current limit resistor
  • Environmental sensors of interest
  • MicroUSB to connect data logger to computer
  • Digital Multimeter

Required equipment for all participants:

  • Computer with high speed internet connection
  • Webcam
  • LoggerNet software installed on computer (a 30-day trial version of LoggerNet software is available here). If you already own the full software, please ensure you have updated to the latest version of LoggerNet.

Campbell Scientific, Inc. will provide certificates for attendees to apply for 2.3 CEUs (Continuing Education Units) through their appropriate regulatory agencies. It is the responsibility of the trainee to apply with their regulatory agency.

Occasionally, a class may not meet our low-enrollment requirements (5 person minimum). In such cases, we reserve the right to cancel the class session and any training fees already paid will be refunded. We will attempt to provide ten days notice if a class is canceled.


Please Note: The cost for the training is $995 per person. The course is free for Campbell Scientific employees.
