Automation Tech Skills & Training

Traditional 4-year educational degrees take too long, are too expensive, and may be unsuitable for many trying to get ahead in the fast-changing technology landscape of the fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0).

Along with 2-year, 1-year and shorter training programs from academia and MOOC vendors, employers often develop their own in-house learning and development programs to meet job requirements.
