UiPath has partnered with Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit technology education organization Byte Back to offer robotic process automation training and identify RPA-related job opportunities in both the public and private sectors.
The partnership seeks to encourage adults to participate in the digital economy by pursuing living-wage careers in the technology field, UiPath said Thursday.
Earlier this year, the software company launched a four-month RPA training program that includes online and in-class instructions on the applications, development and advantages of automation.
“UiPath“™s goal to democratize RPA and Byte Back“™s goal to put “˜Tech Within Reach“™ made this partnership as easy as building a robot,“ said Jim Walker, federal chief technology officer and director of public sector marketing at UiPath.
Students completed the two initial phases of the curriculum and are slated to take a certification exam for the final part of the program. Those who will pass the course will have the chance to land full-time positions at Leesburg, Va.-based consultancy Anika Systems.
UiPath hosted an event Thursday to educate trainees about various RPA use cases and opportunities at federal agencies that operate in the D.C. area.
