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 Yaskawa's 13,400-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 atmosphere. Students work with each other and with the help of Yaskawa Academy instructors to grasp the concepts of robot programming. To perform the hands-on practice exercises, students are typically assigned 2 to a programming pendant at Yaskawa Academy.
