Market leader in intelligent automation, Blue Prism®, announces a partnership with Coursera, one of the world’s leading online learning platforms, for robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent automation training to help narrow the digital skills gap and train future leaders capable of guiding digital workforces. Blue Prism Foundation Course will soon be available to Coursera’s 82 million learners. The company will launch additional courses in the coming months that will provide opportunities for further upskilling and eventual certification.

Betty Vandenbosch, a chief content officer at Coursera, said, “We are pleased to partner with Blue Prism, a leader in the intelligent automation industry, to provide learners with cutting-edge coursework. Digital transformation presents far-reaching opportunities for individuals and organizations to be more efficient, impactful, and human-centric. The new learning content from Blue Prism prepares people across various roles, industries, and regions for this exciting new frontier.”

Blue Prism Foundation courses also contribute to this growing demand for education. The e-learning approaches provide learners with the essential building blocks for training and upskilling, preparing them to operate in the workplaces of the future, those requiring a seamless blend of human workers, digital workers, and business systems that operate in an agile, innovative manner. The development, delivery, and management of digital workers will be managed by organizations.

Global Head of Education Services for Blue Prism, Ana Howes, said, “We are excited to partner with Coursera to deliver the training people need to run and govern businesses’ digital workforces. The platform will help us enhance our own training and certification program and meet our goal of increasing the RPA talent pool to address the skills gap in RPA and intelligent automation. We look forward to expanding our footprint in collaboration with Coursera, to meet the needs of the growing RPA learning community.”

Through intelligent automation, digital workers automate manual and time-consuming tasks across the enterprise, enabling human beings to be more productive and achieve an improved ROI. With human and digital workers working together, businesses will remain innovative and agile in today’s highly competitive digital world.

Increasing numbers of digital workers will require enterprises to acquire new skills. Aspiring automation professionals will be able to complete certification and job-readiness training with Blue Prism Training, which helps individuals, businesses, academia, and governments. The Blue Prism and Coursera partnership will provide the means to retain this growing talent pool.
