ABB has announced it is continuing its online versions of its popular classroom-based robot training courses, helping organisations ensure that staff still get training on robots

ABB Robotics range of robot training courses have been available online for almost 12 months. Built on the same materials used in its popular classroom-based courses normally run at ABB’s Robot Training Centre in Milton Keynes, the Virtual Classroom Training programme is ideal for beginners and experts alike, covering topics including programming, safety and operation.

Each course is instructor led, with options pitched at different competency levels running from two to five days depending on the course topic. Participants will get the same certificate as the normal Milton Keynes classroom-based courses.

The following courses are available:

• IRC5 Operator Course (2 days)

• IRC5 Programming and Operation (4 days)

• IRC5 Advanced Programming, Stage 1 (5 days)

• IRC5 SafeMove Second Generation (3 days)

• RobotStudio Offline Programming (5 days)

To take part in the course you will only need a computer with internet connection, webcam, headset with microphone and RobotStudio, which can be downloaded free of charge via the training portal page at A whole range of courses are available including classes that can be attended at the Milton Keynes facilities.

ABB says these virtual training courses provide the ideal opportunity to keep staff up to speed on robotic technology during these unprecedented times. They can play a key role in helping to futureproof businesses for when operations are allowed to operate at maximum capacity post the pandemic. These virtual training courses provide a hands-on experience, to gain the required skills set to operate modern manufacturing systems from the comfort of your own home.
