In this webinar, you’ll learn about one such program developed by Universal Robots, the leader in collaborative automation. Known for being ultra-safe and easy to learn, with the fastest adoption rates in today’s industrial manufacturing facilities, cobots are the ideal training tool for students, whether they’re second grade or post-secondary. This webinar will include real-world video and successful case study examples.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Key components of a well-rounded automation training program
  2. Various robotics career pathways
  3. Value of credentialing and industry certified programs
