Academy / Training / XRC Operator's Upgrade w/ Arc - Upgrade skills from Operator to Programmer

Classroom lectures on programming commands are reinforced with demonstrations. Commands and topics are related to real-world examples and applications. Material covered in the lectures is enhanced with actual hands-on programming by students in Motoman's 8,500-sq.ft. training facility. Students work in teams to perform workshop exercises. Class size is kept small, typically 12 or fewer, to promote an interactive, hands-on learning atmosphere. Students work with each other and with the help of Motoman instructors to grasp the concepts of robot programming.
