Automation is driving a new way of working. The future workplace will feature a blend of human and digital workforce ("bots") and this symbiotic relationship will create many exciting, new career possibilities. Are you ready to seize the opportunities that will arise as we move into this automated era? If not, now would be a good time to consider the jobs that will be emerging, and to get trained and certified in the most in-demand and high-paying skills; such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
Robotic Process Automation is a game-changing technology that is designed to automate high-volume, repeatable tasks that take up a large percentage of a workers’ time. Much like industrial robots have automated blue-collar work in factories, RPA software is coming to automate white collar work. Take this opportunity to prepare yourself for the future of work!
The goal of this course is to provide you with a clear overview of what RPA is, how it works and when to apply it, and at the same time give you hands-on technology experience by helping you build a robot that automates a simple business process in the UiPath Studio RPA software. This way you’ll both understand the bigger picture, and you will know how the technology works in practice. Further, we will look at how to pilot the technology in an enterprise setting so that you know what steps to take to succeed with any RPA initiative in your organization.
You will learn:
What RPA is and how it works
Why RPA is such a hot topic right now
The pros and cons of the technology (RPA is not the solution to everything)
Who’s offering RPA software
The components of the UiPath Platform (high level)
The UiPath Studio developer software (high level)
How to build a simple software robot (step-by-step exercise together with instructor)
A basic 5-step plan for piloting and implementing RPA in your enterprise (high level)
What roles and responsibilities are needed in an RPA Center of Excellence
Critical success factors for succeeding with an RPA initiative
What to do next to further improve your skills after this course (I’ll point you in the right direction!)
We will also have a look at some real-world examples on how RPA has been applied at different companies.
- Anyone that want to start a career as an RPA Professional, either as an RPA Developer or as an RPA Project Manager, but does not know where to start
- Those who want to build their first software robot
- Professionals that want to confidently discuss and explain RPA in an enterprise setting or at a job interview
- Those who want to know a basic process for piloting RPA in an enterprise setting and what roles and responsibilities are needed to create an RPA Center of Excellence
- Anyone who takes pleasure in impressing their colleagues, boss or friends! :-)
In this section, we will cover:
RPA - What it is and how it works
RPA - Why now?
RPA - Pros and cons
RPA - Vendors
RPA - Case Study

Examples on how RPA has been applied in various businesses
In this lecture, Tor teaches you the 5 basic steps in an RPA implementation project: 1) Identify, evaluate and prioritize processes, 2) Describe processes, 3) Design, develop and test processes, 4) Implement processes and 5) Monitor and continuously improve processes.
In this lecture, Tor teaches you how to identify processes that has an automation potential, how to evaluate those processes in more detail (Applicability + business potential in terms of expected return on investment - ROI) and how to prioritize processes.
In this lecture, Tor describes different activities for monitoring the automated process in the period directly after implementing the process (The “hypercare” period) as well as the importance of having focus on ongoing improvements of the automated process(es).
