Computational Literacy for Modern Careers Training Program

This training program is 80 hours in length and it is all hands-on learning. During the program, trainees use a virtual robot to solve various simple tasks. In this way they learn essential skills such as how to identify repeating patterns and how to break complex problems into simpler ones. Upon completing the program, they have acquired the mindset and skills needed to successfully deal with automation and intelligent machines. Hard skills that they develop include computational thinking, logic, and how to use computers to solve problems.

Computational Literacy for Modern Careers Training Program

At the same time as you’ll learn new hard skills, you’ll develop important soft skills, including the ability to focus, pay attention to detail, communicate, solve problems, use logic and make correct decisions, plan ahead and do it right the first time, persevere, learn from failure, and adapt to changing conditions, among others.

If you have the capability to learn and the desire to grow, this training program is for you, independent of your formal education.
