4 Instructor-Led RPA Courses at AAU
Automation Anywhere University (AAU) provides a complete learning, development, and certification ecosystem to support the adoption and implementation of Robotic Process Automation (RPA). And it’s not limited to online learning.
In fact, instructor-led RPA training is a vital component of Automation Anywhere University and offers a number of benefits, including networking, better retention, and the availability of personal attention. Instructor-led courses provide an environment in which new learners can experiment with the RPA tool, gain context, and learn effective methods for building bots that enable the Digital Workforce (see Figure 1).
As a trainer, I find the classroom experience is different for every session, but some things are the same. Training adults a new technical skill can be a challenge, but all audiences have the same requirements. What are those requirements? Most participants are tuned to one of two “radio” stations in their minds:
- WII – FM (What’s In It – For Me)
- MMFG – AM (Make Me Feel Good – About Myself)
Participants come to class wanting to learn a new skill, something they can take away to make their work easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable. It helps that learning Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and how to create a Digital Workforce, neatly aligns with that goal.
Currently, AAU offers classroom instructor-led training for four courses:
1. Mastering Bots: Design and Build an Advanced Digital Workforce
This course includes three days of training to develop the skills new bot builders require. Targeted for the citizen developer (or business user), it covers the basics of the Automation Anywhere Enterprise RPA platform and best practices for developing bots. It also incorporates exercises and workshop time.
This class is intended for up to 10 learners, and curriculum can focus on Enterprise 11.x or Enterprise A2019.
2. IQ Bot Developer Training
This one-day course for up to 10 learners centers on Automation Anywhere IQ Bot, an artificial intelligence (AI)-based RPA offering. Also targeted to business users, coursework demonstrates the requirements for selecting good documents and domain (type of document and data within), creating learning instances, and training bots to extract data from varying document sets.
3. Solution Architect Training
This two-day course for up to 10 participants focuses on topics important to customer centers of excellence (CoEs). It includes an overview of the technical architecture of the Digital Workforce platform, using RPA in Citrix and SAP environments, the process maturity model, and many other topics.
The process maturity model assists organizations in prioritizing and determining technical feasibility of business processes and automation readiness.
4. Bot Trainer Bootcamp: Learn How to Create and Deliver RPA Training
Tailored to a smaller audience — up to three who have already earned Automation Anywhere Certified Advanced RPA Professional certification — this five-day course concentrates on the concepts needed to train RPA internally or as a training partner.
Participants who complete this course are eligible to be certified RPA trainers and go on to conduct courses that can qualify subsequent participants to become certified RPA professionals.
RPA Professional certification
Although you can achieve Automation Anywhere Certified Advanced RPA Professional certification by taking online courses alone, instructor-led courses help prepare you for this certification exam, as well as the Automation Anywhere Certified Master RPA Professional exam. The master-level certification exam requires each candidate to build and submit three bots.
Practicing bot building as part of an instructor-led course ensures you can get answers to your questions and align with best practices, which are evaluated as part of the certification process.
All instructor-led courses are available to customers and partners and are led by a team of qualified and certified RPA professionals. For more information on scheduling and pricing, contact [email protected].
