15 top RPA certifications

[ad_1]

Robotic process automation (RPA) has emerged as a key technology for streamlining business processes in the enterprise. As organizations increasingly adopt RPA, which relies on software robots to automate tedious tasks, expertise with RPA tools and implementations will become more important for business analysts, business intelligence developers, data or solutions architects, and system integrators or administrators, among other IT roles.

To help get IT workers up to speed and deliver on the business benefits of process automation, RPA vendors offer training and certifications specific to the tools they offer. This list includes certifications from five leading PRA vendors; if your company uses a vendor not on this list, check to see if they offer a certification or training (there’s a good chance they do).
