goRPA - UiPath

Too many administrative and repetitive tasks to handle? Want to automate some of your work processes and eliminate human errors? Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can help you!

This programme aims to help employees to increase productivity through automation of digitized repetitive tasks by learning and applying RPA. This applied learning workshop has two phases:

  • Phase 1 - a 2-day classroom session on introduction to RPA, use cases sharing, hands-on scripting exercises on RPA, RPA project management, and participant’s first use case process review.

  • Phase 2 - RPA first use case implementation facilitation (three half-day sessions). A project team with 1-4 participants will be formed to embark on first use case project. Mentors will be assigned to facilitate each project group. 

Sign up now for this quick to learn & deploy programme that can free you from mundane and repetitive tasks so that you can channel precious time for higher value work.

Upon completing the course, you may extend your RPA capabilities by progressing through Stages 2 and 3 of this structured pathway:

  • Stage 1: goRPA
  • Stage 2: goRPA Advanced
  • Stage 3: goRPA Expert

Learning Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Attain the skills in RPA script development and apply directly to their work processes
  • Be equipped with the knowledge to assess and identify possible areas for RPA development to improve work productivity
  • Appreciate the benefits of RPA in automating repetitive tasks and eliminate human error

Who Should Attend?

This course is suitable for business professionals and individuals who are keen to learn how to use RPA to eliminate mundane and repetitive tasks.

Entry Requirement

Participants should be IT-savvy, expected to be familiar in general operation of a personal computer (PC) and proficient in using Microsoft Office.

For this course, RP has prepared laptops with UiPath software to facilitate the first 2 days’ of classroom training. To effectively reinforce the knowledge learnt from goRPA, participants are encouraged to use own laptop with pre-installed UiPath. To achieve the best learning outcome, participants are expected to use their own laptops for the development of their projects so they can apply what they have created directly.


Participants will be awarded a certificate of completion upon meeting the 75% course attendance requirement.

For courses with formal assessment component, participants will be awarded the certification of completion upon passing the assessment. Otherwise, a certification of attendance will be issued instead upon meeting the 75% course attendance requirement.
