According to the McKinsey Global Institute, automation and advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are anticipated to encourage as many as 375 million workers, or roughly 14 percent of the global workforce to reskill themselves by 2030.
Robotic process automation (RPA) ranks as the third fastest growing technology for reskilling in the U.S. freelance job market, according to a survey by Upwork.
RPA software vendor Automation Anywhere is leading the way to reskill and ready the workforce for the future of automation.
The company said that its education and certification division, Automation Anywhere University (AAU), has already trained more than 350,000 developers, business analysts, partners and students in RPA.
Within the next five years, the company anticipates certifying more than one million individuals for the future of work and is continuing to build partnerships with training partners, professional communities and academic institutions globally.
“The kinds of skills companies will require in the next three to five years are going to shift, with profound implications for the career paths that workers will need to pursue as RPA continues its trajectory,” asserted Sundar Nagarathnam, Senior Vice President, Automation Anywhere.
“We believe that investing in retraining and upskilling today’s professionals is an urgent business priority, and it’s imperative to prepare the next generation workforce for the future,” he added.
Automation Anywhere has recently signed an agreement with the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants which serves the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), leaders in the accounting profession worldwide. This partnership will offer RPA training to the organizations’ 650,000 membership seeking continuing professional education credit courses both online and in person. In addition, large training partners like NIIT, Fast Lane, Pasona and several boutique partners offer RPA training across the globe.
AAU has trained students from the world’s top universities in the U.S., Singapore, Korea and India. Some of the academic institutions now affiliated with AAU include: University of Mississippi, Tulane University, University of Maryland in the U.S., as well as NUS in Singapore, Christ University in India, Cheongju University in Korea and Dhurakij Pundit University in Thailand.
AAU has also opened more than 85 Bot Labs at educational institutions worldwide to ensure students have the ability to gain expertise in building software bots.
