We often get the question, "why do you sell RPA training when you can get it all for free?" Well, let me debunk of few of the myths behind that statement now!
For starters, you can't get it all for free. You can only get some knowledge for free though on-demand videos. We occasionally sell courses in this format ourselves, but it's not our preferred approach and it doesn't suit everyones training style. The rigid structure and forced learning paths are not the most effective use of time, the materials can age quickly and for many platforms there is a lot of poor quality material out there.
The combination of online training with a live instructor addresses many of the problems companies face when planning training. It provides always up-to-date knowledge, the answers to your specific questions when you need them, and training delivered at a convenient time in short bites that are easier to accommodate into a typical working pattern. It's the best of both worlds in terms of flexibility and formality.
Classroom training is still the best option for many, and we provide this too when needed. Most of our training is live online, and all sessions are recorded so if a refresh is needed then students can revisit a video of the course they attended. An option not generally available with classroom training.
Medium and Large Organisations value the practical knowledge provided by a live trainer with practical experience to accelerate their path to effectiveness; the trainer is a coach and mentor throughout their learning programme.
The structured virtual classroom of students - or cohort - often work together on exercises and practical homework assignments which are reviewed and discussed in groups in the following session. Believe it or not, some students ask for extra homework once they get started! This provides practical experience and reinforcement of knowledge that is impossible to achieve through one-way on-demand videos.
But, you don't have to just take my word for it, here's some incredible feedback from our latest Automation Anywhere online training course:
"We asked The RPA Academy for a lot and they delivered!
As RPA remains on the leading edge of automation technologies within firms worldwide, we had a need to have as many people as we could find to be trained to develop such tool.
The RPA Academy worked with us to accommodate an aggressive schedule of training classes for 60 trainees over a 6 week period. The trainers were RPA experts that were willing to take the time to work with the trainees on everything from explaining basic programming terms to pushing advanced programmers to think of new creative possibilities with such a powerful tool.
I recommend, and plan to use, The RPA Academy for future RPA training needs as they arise.”
