Since 2016 Universal Robots has offered robotics training to customers and others with an interest in collaborative robots. And now, after having grown increasingly popular in the past years and with over 120 onsite training centers across the globe, more than 200,000 robotics enthusiasts have joined the Universal Robots Academy.

“It is amazing to see that so many robotics enthusiasts from all over the world have joined us to enhance their robotic skills and benefit from the training we offer,” says Mikkel Vahl, Global Head of Academy and Education. “We’re a company on a mission – automation for anyone, anywhere. A key part of this is providing our customers and robotics enthusiasts with high quality training that gives them the skills they need to unleash the full potential of their cobots.”
With customers ranging from big global companies to small, family-owned businesses, Universal Robots helps automate anything from bin picking to heavy-load palletizing and ship welding. This variety is reflected in UR Academy which offers a range of courses from free virtual e-learning to in-depth and in-person classroom training.
“Our courses range from entry level to advanced robotics so, no matter the task or the size of your company, you can find relevant training that can help you become even more successful with your automation. And we can see it works – customers who do take training with us are ultimately more successful and confident,” says Mikkel Vahl.

The users of UR Academy come from more than 130 different countries and have all taken some of the free online courses or participated in either virtual or in-class robotics training led by highly-skilled specialists from either Universal Robots or an Authorized Training Partner.
With the training offers continuously being updated, UR Academy has several interesting additions coming up later this year and in 2024.
This includes new UR20 e-learning teaching customers to set up and program the newest cobot from Universal Robots. New risk assessment e-learning, a palletizing learning path and a new and improved simulator are also among the upcoming additions and updates to the UR Academy.
