FANUC CERT-Certified Education Robot Training

FANUC America now offers Certified Education Robot Training to qualifying High Schools, Community Colleges, and Universities. With FANUC America's educational robots, students can learn to utilize the latest automation technology while applying Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Industrial robotics training in the classroom can safely be achieved through the CERT program. FANUC America provides the necessary training to the instructor as well as a curriculum to introduce students to robot applications including: integrated vision systems (iRVision), programming a logic controller, and using ROBOGUIDE simulation software.

To accompany the CERT program, an eligible school can purchase a new innovative educational tooling package. With this package, students will utilize the same robots and software that are used in industry including integrated vision systems (iRVision), programming a logic controller, and the use of ROBOGUIDE simulation software. Schools can use the new package to integrate robot training into their programs and initiatives. Some of the successful approaches used by educational institutions are:

  • Integration of robotic automation to teach design and manufacturing concepts
  • Creation of new courses and project-based activities to prepare students to work with robotic automation
  • Add robotic automation facilitated learning to Career Technical Education programs
  • Integrate CERT program with career cluster curriculum
  • Apply industrial robot training to engineering technology curriculum
  • Add CERT program to community workforce retraining initiatives

FANUC Certified Education CNC Training

With the current trend of reshoring coupled with the ongoing problem of a shortage of skilled workers, the need to train future machinists is paramount to fill growing gaps in the domestic work force. A new employee needs to be productive right out of the gate and run their machine with minimum supervision.

However, the reality is that manufacturing is running very lean and there are few training resources available. Since the desired outcome is to have a worker that can setup and run a CNC machine effectively, it makes sense that the bulk of the education provides the necessary knowledge and hands-on experience. Community and technical colleges and vocational schools are convenient and economical sources for students to get the training they need.

As the leading CNC manufacturer in the industry with the largest installed base, students are most likely going to be using a FANUC CNC when they enter the workforce. So, it only makes sense that they are taught on FANUC CNCs in school. As a result, FANUC is engaging with the educational community to assist them in providing the best possible training to ensure that the students have the skills required by industry.

After consulting with education experts, FANUC America has created a new FANUC CNC Education Certification Training program focusing on making sure that students that qualify have learned suitable skills from a FANUC certified instructor, teaching a FANUC approved curriculum, and using genuine FANUC CNC equipment. For a basic CNC G-code class, NCGuide Academic Packages may be sufficient, but for hands-on lathe and machining center courses, more than 50% of their shop work must be completed using machines with a FANUC CNC.
