Industrial workforces are being pressured like never before. The systems they must productively design, operate, and maintain are more connected and complex. Roles and responsibilities have expanded, requiring more diverse skillsets. In addition, older workers are moving into retirement, which leaves skills and knowledge gaps. We can provide training where and when needed to help address these issues.

With 250+ standard open enrollment courses at your disposal, your employees will be equipped to realize the full capabilities of Rockwell Automation technologies. Courses are designed to align with specific job functions and focus on relevant job tasks.

2017 Open Enrollment Training Schedule

The cost of unscheduled downtime, safety compliance, and new technology integration can significantly impact productivity. However, many of these issues can be minimized with proper workforce training and development.
