WMH Robotics hosts regular Universal Robots Core Training courses at our facility in Tamworth - near Birmingham!

Our training courses are taken with intimate class sizes of up to 4 people and are led by a UR-approved trainer to ensure you maximise your learning potential.  Walk away from the two-day core training course with the skills to master your robot & application.

Your training journey starts here. By following these easy steps you will be mastering both the robot and application in no time:

Step One - Online Training

The free online e-series core training takes around 2 hours and is required to undergo the core training at WMH.  It covers all the basics from starting up the robot to making basic programs.

Step Two - UR Academy at WMH Robotics

After the 2-day course, you will have hands-on experience with a UR robot. You will have programmed the robot several times to perform common tasks, including the operation of common peripherals (conveyors, sensors, grippers). You will be able to optimise a pick-and-place flow, perform palletisation, understand safety concepts, and know the additional resources available to them both online and through other training courses. You will be ready to return to your own robot and create pick-and-place, palletisation, and other common application programs on your own.

Please note that you must have completed the Online Core Training to be able to sign up for the In-class Core Training.
