Collaborative Robotics

Collaborative robots, or co-robots, are light, industrial robots that work alongside humans. They must be programmed and operated by technicians with specialized skills.

Wake Tech has worked with an advisory board of area employers to create a certification series that will train you for local jobs. The Collaborative Robotics Certificate program offers three certificates – Technician I, Technician II and Programmer – and employers are eager to hire individuals who complete the stackable series.

Financial assistance available

Workforce Continuing Education offers financial assistance for many workforce training programs through the Propel program and other resources. Email [email protected] for more information.

Wake Tech received a National Science Foundation grant, titled Robotics Awake, to work with industry partners to develop a curriculum for operation and programming of collaborative robots for manufacturing. The curriculum includes stackable certificates: Collaborative Robotics Technician and Collaborative Robotics Programmer Technician. NSF Grant DUE: 1700468

Technician courses
Study the principles of collaborative robotics, their uses and applications and proper operation and maintenance through online learning modules and hands-on lab exercises. This course includes materials from Tooling University On-Line covering topics such as workplace safety; blueprint reading; basics of electrical theory, programmable logic controller theory and pneumatic theory; robotic connectivity; customer service; and basics of collaborative robotic programming and troubleshooting.

Programmer course
Learn a more advanced understanding of robot operations and programming, material handling techniques, technical system components and 2D integrated robot vision guidance. The programmer will be able to reteach points, install a program, verify safety functionality, maintain backup, change machine modes, understand floating points and recover from a crash.
