Course Description:

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) enables automating business processes using software robots. Software robots interpret, trigger responses, and communicate with other systems just like humans do. Robotic processes and intelligent automation tools can help businesses improve the effectiveness of services faster and at a lower cost than current methods. This course is the perfect start to your automation journey, with a special focus on one of the most popular RPA tools: UiPath.

Robotic Process Automation takes you on a journey from understanding the basics of RPA to advanced implementation techniques. You’ll become oriented in the UiPath interface and learn about its workflow. Once you’re familiar with the environment, we’ll get hands-on with automating different applications such as Excel, SAP, Windows and web applications, screen and web scraping, working with user events, as well as understanding exceptions and debugging. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to build your first software bot along with wiring it to perform various automation tasks with the help of bot deployment best practices.
