17-19th July 2021 (Rushden)
(Postponed from 2020 and June 2021)
As the lifting of lockdown restrictions proceeds, it became clear that we cannot run this course on the orginal 2021 dates we had originally hoped.
So we have taken the difficult decision to reschedule it yet again to the date in July as shown above. This is after the date when the government hopes to have lifted all restrictions, so we are all hoping we can run the course then, and look forward to welcoming you back at face to face courses.
All bookings for postponed dates in 2020 and 2021 will be honoured for this one. If you already have such a booking, you will be contacted by email with latest updates.
This course is for those already familiar with the basics of CBUS, who would like to take it further.
The course will take place in the “Goods Shed” meeting room at the Rushden Transport Museum & Railway, Rushden Station, Northamptonshire.
The course will start with arrivals from 4pm on Friday evening and then takes place over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday).
We also have an optional follow-on practical workshop day on Monday 19th July. This will be a practical workshop day for you to apply the knowledge learnt over the weekend. You can work on whatever you wish, with assistance from the tutors, such as working on your own CBUS implementation or revisiting certain course subjects.
This course assumes that you have attended the Introduction to CBUS course, or that you already have a good understanding of the basics of CBUS, building modules and getting them working.
“More CBUS” takes you on from the basics to making more of CBUS, with particular emphasis on using the Universal CANMIO firmware as well as interlocking and other applications of CANCOMPUTE.
Topics covered will include:
Bookings are open.
