Digital Transformation Bootcamp
16-week Intensive | Build a Digital Portfolio | SAITMicro

If you like thinking outside the box and get energized at creating value through efficiency, you’ll love Robotic Process Automation (RPA) — and our Applied RPA bootcamp. RPA is a pivotal technology that brings automation and efficiency to business processes. Emulating human interactions through automation software, RPA allows organizations to create digital workers capable of completing repetitive computer-based tasks precisely and quickly. Organizations across all industries — from energy to finance, healthcare and more — are realizing the benefits of RPA in their digital transformation process. RPA provides opportunities to spend time and resources on the more strategic, value-added aspects of business operations, with applications in finance, accounting, customer service, human resources, supply chain and more.

Designed by industry experts, this intensive 160-hour bootcamp is globally informed but locally driven. You’ll have a foundational RPA skillset augmented with an understanding of strategy and industry best practices — a combination designed to prepare you for the evolving demands of the workforce as technology continues to transform the economy. This hands-on course offers the option to customize your learning experience by choosing one of two industry-leading RPA platforms: UiPath or Microsoft Power Automate.
