John Wiley and Sons Inc., a global leader in research and education, entered into an official knowledge partnership today with Automation Anywhere to create a series of job-role based official study guides and aligned courses on Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
The first set of courses and materials, known as Wiley-Automation Anywhere Official RPA Study Guides and Courseware Series, is set for launch on October 2019. WileyNXT will be the flagship platform to host this program.
“Our partnership with Automation Anywhere is part of our ongoing effort to help learners achieve ‘Industry 4.0’ competencies and provide the best learning and skilling RPA programs for India’s workforce,” said Vikas Gupta, managing director, Wiley India.
The Wiley-Automation Anywhere Official RPA Study Guide and Courseware Series will include competency-based curriculum for specific job roles, study guides and digital courseware including videos, online assessments and lab work.
To further student preparedness and future success, Automation Anywhere will supplement lab work with its Bot Labs program, providing additional hands-on practice that offers a path to RPA certification.
These official study resources will pool expertise from both Wiley and Automation Anywhere to create a successful learning path for students seeking RPA career opportunities.
Global companies bring thousands of in-demand jobs in India
Gupta highlighted that many global companies have set up their R&D centers, business process outsourcing offices, and other services in India, and brought opportunities for thousands of in-demand jobs in technical fields that did not exist until recently, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, data engineering and RPA.
He believes that the collaboration between Wiley and Automation Anywhere has the potential to build a robust ecosystem with the core competencies required in future job roles and prepare candidates for these in-demand jobs.
Arvind Thothadri, vice-president, global training and certifications, Automation Anywhere, commented, “With millions entering the workforce every year and with experienced workers exploring opportunities in RPA, such certifications and coursework pave the way for evolution and innovation.”
The partnership aims to prepare the Indian workforce for more than 300,000 RPA jobs.
