Quick Startup with Cross Company & Universal Robots Academy

Cross Company & UR Academy

Josh Westmoreland | July 6th, 2018

Interested in learning more about what it takes to program a Universal Robot? Do you already have one at your facility and need to train more personnel on how to use it?

Universal Robots Academy Training Program

The Universal Robots Academy is a great resource that you have at your disposal. In the Academy, you will go through nine different training modules that thoroughly cover what it takes to program a basic application. Everything from how to boot up your robot, how you incorporate sensors, and how you set up a program structure.

This fully interactive training program takes roughly 90 minutes to complete. Once finished, the foundation will be set for you to start working with a Universal Robot. Beyond that, Cross Company offers custom on-site training at your facility and a free Core Training at our Belmont, NC location. The Core Training is held on a quarterly basis and we strongly recommend registering as early as possible as slots do fill up fast.
