Industrial Robotics: A Certified Turnkey Training




KUKA Training - Level 1 

As part of this one-week training course dedicated to critical knowledge of industrial robots, you will learn about the structure of a robot, base programming, and all the necessary operations to commission a KUKA robot.

During the hands-on training, you will be able to operate a KUKA robot, make it move, and create industrial robot manipulation programs and applications.

The ready2_educate training cell, created by the KUKA company, is used across the world by “KUKA Colleges” to teach robotics. Thanks to its ingenious design, it can provide specific training sessions to people who work in robotics. This training course is intended for the Université de Moncton Engineering Faculty’s industrial robotics laboratory, which is funded by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and the New Brunswick Innovation Foundation.

A hands-on training course provided by specialized instructors who are certified by the KUKA company to deliver a full training curriculum, after which you will be ready to use a KUKA robot in the workplace.

Continuing Education Units (CEU): 3,5

Financing possibility:

The program provides funding to eligible businesses and organizations to train individuals who are being considered for an available job in their company and/or to improve the skills and opportunities of their new or existing employees. It is recognized that employee training is primarily the responsibility of the employer; however given the current labour market context in New Brunswick, the WorkingNB branch of the Department of Post-Secondary Education Training and Labour (PETL) wants to encourage employers to provide strategic training to their workforce as per the program’s criteria.
