The growing popularity of RPA also increases the demand for RPA developers. Thus, RPA training courses play a critical role in providing the necessary knowledge to raise new RPA developers and satisfying the demand. Today, RPA software companies and online education providers have various RPA training courses for you to become a successful RPA developer. 

What is an RPA developer?

An RPA developer is mainly responsible for strategically improving the process before implementation and automating a business process by building and designing workflow diagrams. These two tasks can be separated but it is beneficial for RPA developers to understand process efficiency and suggest improvements as necessary.

In businesses, they work closely with business operations and business analysts to create and optimize workflow processes. They can be responsible for all or some of these tasks: the coding, debugging, and testing for RPA initiatives.

You can read our in-depth RPA developer guide to learn more about being an RPA developer.

What skills are required along with RPA courses?

As there are good RPA training courses provided by both RPA vendors and online teaching platforms, they give fundamental knowledge for those who want to become RPA developers. While these courses offer a full understanding of how to deploy new RPA projects for companies, RPA developers also need specific skills to perform successful RPA projects. An RPA developer should also have the following set of skills:

  • Strategic Planning Skills: Mapping an effective workflow and setting correct project goals will make RPA implementation easier.
  • Strong Analytical Skills: An RPA developer should be able to analyze a process and make improvement recommendations to enhance the process workflow.
  • Debugging Skills: RPA projects may include errors and not work smoothly for the first time. A successful RPA developer should be responsible for testing and bug fixes. The ability to debug a robot will save time and stress, as any error that comes along can be handled.
  • Understanding of Programming Languages: Although there are also low-code / no-code RPA training courses, experience, and knowledge in programming languages like C/C++, Python and Java will be an advantage. 

Why is RPA training relevant now?

The increasing popularity of RPA technology leads companies to implement RPA initiatives in their business processes. As seen in Figure 1, the popularity of RPA has risen significantly in the last few years, and this situation increases the demand for RPA developers. It is estimated that the global RPA market will reach ~$13 billion by 2030, and Deloitte shares that 78% of companies have already implemented RPA expect to increase investment in RPA over the next three years significantly.

Hi, I have been doing automation for approx. 2 years now first Automation Anywhere, now I am doing UiPath automation, each I have been thrown in and told to learn it and do it.. I have now been approved to take classes in UiPath automation but prefer face to face or instructor led. I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL and I understand there still may not be any classroom settings offered at this time, but I do want to be the best at what I do.. currently I do a lot of UiPath automations in combination with SharePoint Online, etc. I also use Power Automate.. So if anyone can recommend something for me, I would greatly appreciate it now that I have the funding 🙂

Hi, very much helpful information, thank-you for that. Just a question, can a Mechanical engineer learn RPA with very little knowledge of programming?

Sure, RPA bots are quite easy to program, you do not need in-depth experience in computer science to get started.

Hi, thanks for sharing this informative article,
Could you pls enlighten, as to what are the prerequisites for learning RPA Courses

May 09, 2018 at 18:10

Well, RPA programming is relatively simple compared to things like backend or frontend programming. Being able to use a computer is probably the only prerequisite. Knowing basics of programming would also help of course.
