At the end of this course, the user will be able to select an appropriate NI DMM and probes for their measurement needs. They will be able to set up their DMM device and perform both interactive and programmatic measurements of their DUT. In addition, they will be able to measure inputs, operate with other instruments in their system, and detect and troubleshoot errors.
