UiPath and Coursera offer automation education courses


Enterprise automation software company UiPath partners with Coursera to offer automation education courses to over 92 million users registered in the learning platform.

Offering free courses, professional certificates, and full collegiate degrees from leading universities, Coursera provides individuals with access to a catalogue of online educational resources in technology and business. The Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Specialisation and Step into RPA course from UiPath on Coursera build knowledge and skills in developing and deploying UiPath software robots.

The six-course, online specialisation begins with an introduction to UiPath and basic concepts of RPA, then augments that foundation with RPA design and development strategies and methodologies using UiPath platform solutions.

The RPA Specialisation creates competence for both business and technical users in designing and building automated solutions for processes and prepares learners for the UiPath Certified RPA Associate exam.

Eighty-one percent of learners on Coursera in emerging markets reported achieving career benefits such as earning a raise or promotion or starting a new career while 71% of learners overall reported achieving those career benefits, according to the Coursera 2021 Impact Report.

As organisations seek to retain workers and attract new employees in a highly competitive labour market, a recent UiPath survey of US business executives found that 85% believe that incorporating automation and automation training into their organisation will help them retain employees and find new talent.

“As digital transformation sweeps across industries, employees need to learn the skills and emerging technologies required to compete and thrive professionally,” says Coursera chief content officer Betty Vandenbosch. “To help learners prepare for this dynamic environment, we are pleased to welcome UiPath, a leader in the automation industry, to the Coursera partner community.”

Research by UiPath and Bain & Company reveals that 86% of employees want to use automation, but only 30% of business leaders give them access to it. Democratising automation skills is also pertinent to organisations as they are challenged by technology fragmentation that slows companies down.

CIOs are tackling this with enterprise automation strategies that allow various systems, apps, and software to co-exist for the benefit of employees and customers. Thus, as the use of automation multiplies in enterprises, roles for automation will continue to be in feverish demand worldwide.

“Democratising access to technical skills around automation is a core value proposition at UiPath, and anyone can prepare to enter the automation field or advance their careers through this specialisation. Our automation courses and professional certificate on Coursera will help narrow the skills gap in an automation-first world,” comments UiPath senior vice president Tom Clancy.
