Chennai: RPA player Automation Anywhere and ICT Academy have expanded their collaboration with the aim to upskill additional thousands of more students from engineering and non-engineering institutes in RPA.
The goal is to empower future workers to complete more than 500,000 RPA-related courses over the next two years. More than 300,000 certifications have already been issued under the program.
Through this learning initiative, students will access content from Automation Anywhere University (AAU). The program provides role-based learning trails, courses and certifications based on Automation 360 – the company’s AI-powered, cloud-native intelligent automation platform.
“One of the largest opportunities for us is to make RPA learning available to students and educators. With the scale and opportunity that India accords, there is a real sense of purpose to collaborate with ICT Academy to drive the engagement towards scaffolding the future of work” said Kristen Engelhardt, SVP – Community and Learning, Automation Anywhere.
“This unique program will provide first-hand knowledge about automation to not only engineering students but also, to non-engineers. We are excited to partner with Automation Anywhere and help students gain opportunities to work on relevant technologies with practical training,” commented ICT Academy CEO Hari Balachandran on the expanded collaboration between Automation Anywhere and ICT Academy.
The company’s training and certification arm AAU provides RPA training to hundreds of thousands of learners who have completed more than 2.5 million RPA courses.
The program has expanded at an accelerated pace globally with more than 210,000 certifications, 150+ academic institutions, continuing education programs, and professional associations.
