  • Intro to RPA with UiPath

    In this course, you will learn about RPA using UiPath, specifically how to use UiPath Studio to develop automation solutions. You’ll first get a deep dive into Studio and how to use activities to program the robot to mimic actions. You’ll understand how data is stored and passed between applications and actions while understanding the logical flow of execution of the actions. Finally, you’ll learn about selectors, which are the heart of user interface identification and automation and how the robots use them to work within UI applications to successfully identify where to enter or extract data and actions.

  • Why should I enroll?
    Technology is facing a tipping point and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the catalyst. Over 60% of all positions for information workers spend over 30% of their time doing rote, automatable tasks, and business are looking to leverage RPA to free up employees to focus on more strategic work. That's why RPA is the fastest-growing segment of the enterprise software market, and why UiPath was the fastest growing technology company in 2019.
    The RPA Developer Nanodegree program was designed with UiPath to train professionals to be able to support companies in their adoption of RPA tools and best practices. Students will learn the skills that enable automation processes, master specific automation techniques for the most commonly used applications like Excel, email, and PDFs, and work within the UiPath platform to implement RPA best practices and enable more advanced automation processes. By becoming an RPA Developer today, you'll have the skills companies need as the RPA field continues to expand in the coming years.
