RPA is one of the fastest-growing segments of automation, with Forrester
projecting that the market will reach $2.9 billion in 2021. As RPA
infiltrates businesses across industries and functions – streamlining
workflows and allowing for superior scalability and flexibility within
the enterprise – it is critical that employees know how to leverage the
technology in order to harness its benefits, namely enhanced

UiPath launched its Academy to empower workers to master the
fundamentals of RPA, gaining the knowledge and hands-on experience to
successfully navigate the future of work. The first-of-its-kind, free
online RPA training and certification curriculum offers participants the
opportunity to upskill or reskill their capabilities for the “automation
first” era. Academy training courses prepare professionals for the roles
required to build an RPA Robotic Operations Center (ROC) within an
organization, including RPA developers, solution architects,
infrastructure engineers, implementation managers and business analysts.
More than 400,000 individuals from 170 countries around the world have
enrolled in UiPath Academy since its launch in 2017.

By signing the White House Pledge to America’s Workers, UiPath aims to
further democratize RPA and arm every employee with a software robot.
The company has already begun fulfilling its pledge with successful
training at the General Services Administration and the United States
Department of Agriculture. With additional training planned by both
agencies and ongoing non-profit training in Washington D.C., UiPath is
eager to help American workers begin their reskilling efforts to be
successful in the new digital economy.

“Business automation will have far-reaching impacts on the way we work,
and we believe we have an obligation to America and the rest of the
world to support the future of work,” said Daniel Dines, UiPath CEO and
co-founder. “One way we’re doing that is through the UiPath Academy,
Academic Alliance and Automation Ready programs, venues to democratize
RPA and make RPA education and training available to anyone with the
ambition to pursue it. We have pledged 80 percent of all the trainings
committed to Pledge to America’s Workers, showing our dedication to
helping Americans flourish in the ‘automation first’ era. We are proud
to sign this pledge.”

UiPath joins more than 200 organizations so far – including Salesforce,
Amazon and Deloitte – in signing the White House Pledge to America’s
Workers. UiPath’s signing ceremony took place on June 12, in Washington,
D.C., in the margins of SelectUSA Investment Summit.
