US-based intelligent automation provider, Automation Anywhere has expanded its collaboration with ICT Academy to upskill additional thousands more students from engineering and non-engineering institutes in Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
The partnership aims 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, the company said.
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,” said Kristen Engelhardt, Senior Vice President, Community & Learning, Automation Anywhere.
“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,” Engelhardt added.
According to Hari Balachandran, CEO of ICT Academy, this 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,” Balachandran added.
In June, Automation Anywhere appointed ex-senior executive vice president at Salesforce, Rob Ferguson, as its Chief Revenue Officer.
Also, in December last, seeking an expansion of the platform and achieving process discovery capability which enables AI-powered software to map internal process in an automated way, Automation Anywhere had acquired San Francisco based FortressIQ.
