Fanuc and Rockwell Automation develop apprenticeship programs

Fanuc America Corp. and Rockwell Automation formed a coalition to kick off accelerated work and learn apprenticeship programs designed to upskill current and future workers for jobs in advanced manufacturing, robotics and automation. The coalition has developed new apprenticeship programs offering people opportunities to gain credentials that include fundamental robotics (robot operator) and automation (PLC operator). The program offers a second level of credentials for robot and PLC technicians. A third credentialing level called integration specialist builds on the fundamental and technical skills and teaches people to operate and troubleshoot integrated Fanuc-Rockwell Automation technologies.
