(RPA) Robotic Process Automation Fundamentals for Accounting and Finance Professionals Certificate

Description

Ensure a competitive advantage

By 2020, 40% of manual accounting tasks are predicted to be automated, which can ensure a competitive advantage. With advanced preparation and strategy, rollout can be timely and
result in significant hours saved.

Developed by Edward Brooks, founder of the RPA Academy, this certificate program will focus on robotic process automation benefits and how the use of software robots can enable your business or clients to become more competitive and agile. You will gain an understanding of the risks, opportunities, and organizational impact of automation while learning the decision criteria and key considerations needed to build a business case and run a successful proof-of-concept. You will also understand the steps and governance needed to implement or advise clients on how to implement successfully.

Upon completing the seven modules, you will earn a digital badge to proudly display anywhere on the internet—a personal blog; a social network like LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter; Mozilla Open Badges; a biographical page on a company website, or an online resume. Set yourself apart as a future-ready financial professional.
