Since the company began in 1972, Nida Corporation has grown to become a world leader in the development, design, and installation of sophisticated electronics training systems. Born of the aerospace industry, Nida initially was challenged to meet the expanding and demanding requirements of military high-technology training. In the early 1980s Nida was one of the first training development companies to offer all of our courseware in computer assisted instruction (CAI) format. In the mid-nineties, Nida began providing performance-based technical training in a distance education format, linking training institutions with students in remote areas around the globe. Today, Nida Corporation is the pacesetter for the field of technical training. Nida training systems stand out as the first choice of the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Nida is dedicated to meeting the constantly changing world of advanced electronics training while remembering our roots by providing the very best in fundamental electronics training packages.
