Re: Have you joined the displaced worker program yet?

Hello Christine,

 

Yes, I joined a few days ago, and I wonder how to find out if I've been accepted into the program and when I can begin training.  I'll keep pinging DWP just to make sure my application doesn't fall through the cracks.

 

This is an excellent forward-thinking strategy on the part of Mentor-Graphics Corporation. What better way to sell their tools than to have an army of trained, grateful and loyal experts in their tools ready for when the economy rebounds (as it always does).

 

Have a great 4th of July.

 

Cheers,

 

Bob P.

Re: Have you joined the displaced worker program yet?

Hello Christine,

 

Oops!  You said: "Below is a list of the courses we offer the most frequently" but I don't see a link to the courses or an attachment.  Can you point me to them?

 

Thanks,

 

Bob P.

Re: Have you joined the displaced worker program yet?

Thanks, Christine,

 

The one I want is "SystemVerilog for Verification" preferably on-line live or even archived.  I'm an expert with analog behavioral modeling and now while between jobs it's an excellent time to plant a foot on the digital side of the fence.

 

What's my next step to enroll?

 

Cheers,

 

Bob P.

Re: Have you joined the displaced worker program yet?

Hi Christine,

 

I registered for the program on July 1 and received the following message from community_registration@relay1.mentorg.com

 

 

A Community registration request has been submitted on the Mentor Graphics Community web site.

To verify and activate the request, please click on the link below:

https://communities.mentor.com/registration/comreg/verify?actv=com1246500515__Peruzzi_IEEE.org

 

At the time I responded through the link and all was well.  I didn't hear anything further so I followed up with some friends at Mentor Graphics.  They helped me contact, and then I had an email conversation with Brian Wineland:

 

From Brian:

Robert,

Thank you for signing up for the Displaced Worker Program. What classes are you interested in taking. You can review the courses on our website here:

http://www.mentor.com/training_and_services/training/courses/

 

From me:

Hello Brian,

Thanks very much for responding.  I think the best course for me to start with would be SystemVerilog for Verification Live Online Training but I’d like your opinion.

From Brian:

Absolutely, we need to get you enrolled in SV first.

 

 

Today I tried to revisit my application to see if all is well but I couldn't find it. Not surprisingly, the link above no longer works. But I did fill in my profile for the community.

 

Maybe all is indeed well and all I need to do is wait to be contacted, but I have a nagging doubt that I've left something out of my registration and application.  Call it paranoia if you'd like, but would you please help me confirm that I've completed all of my steps?

 

Thanks very much,

 

Bob P.

Then on 7/14 you and I began our conversation through this community.

Re: Have you joined the displaced worker program yet?

Christine,

 

The bottom lines of my posting were chopped off.

 

I have been trying to check my registration and application for completeness, and to add my chosen class, but I haven't been able to find it.  I did however, fill in my profiled.

 

Would you kindly help me find and check it?  I'm not sure at what point I can sit and wait for a response.

 

Thanks again,

 

Bob P.

Re: Have you joined the displaced worker program yet?

Hi Christine,

 

I registered for the displaced worker program today. How long would it take for someone to contact me on classes? Is there some way of finding out when these courses start?

 

Thanks

Sunil

Re: Have you joined the displaced worker program yet?

Hi Christine,

 

Is the displaced worker program still on? I havent gotten any calls about classes. I did check the public schedule for classes and was interested  in 1 or 2 of them, but it asks for payment for those courses.

 

Thanks

Sunil

Re: Have you joined the displaced worker program yet?

I have registered and (I think) I have been accepted for the Displaced Worker Program.

I have looked at the long list of courses offered. I have decided upon the two I want.

I now need to know the site where I request these two courses. I don't think I should

be using the normal course registration site where one agrees to give Credit Card info

  Am I missing something in the process? Can someone offer advice?

Thanks,

L Buschelman

Re: Have you joined the displaced worker program yet?

Hi Christine,

 

Can you tell me if this program still exists and how much does it cost for each course ?

 

Thanks,

 

Ravi
