Are you intrigued by new technologies and do you want to learn how to tackle the challenges that companies face in identifying, implementing and executing automation solutions, to directly drive change within an organisation?

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the technology that allows the use of software in configuring robots to perform actions that would normally be executed by humans on digital systems. Robots interact with various applications capturing and manipulating data, to replicate the repetitive tasks humans perform on a day to day basis.

The FDM RPA careers programme will provide you with training on FDM’s core foundation modules before starting RPA certified training, prior to placement on client site. The RPA training will be carried out on market-leading RPA platforms such as Blue Prism, UI Path or NICE Systems.
