EEF launches robotics and automation courseEEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, has launched a new training course that will re-train and up-skill employees in the knowledge and practical skills involved with robotic and automation engineering (leading to an EAL Level 3 Certificate in Robotics and Automation).

The EEF www.eef.org.uk" target="_blank">(www.eef.org.uk) says there is a significant gap between the manufacturing workforce’s current capabilities and what they need to be; and with employers installing robotics and automated systems in factories, there is an urgent need to develop the right skills to work alongside this technology.

The EEF course lasts eight weeks and includes: mechanical and electrical maintenance of automation; robot processes and functions; automated control systems; machine software design; robot programming; and simulation

The course is aimed at employees with existing knowledge of manufacturing, those who wish to learn about robotics and automation engineering, and technicians and engineers who wish to enhance their skills.

It takes place at EEF’s Advanced Technology Training Centre in Birmingham.
