A level Program

'A' level program of AICRA is equivalent to an Advance Level of Certification in Robotics Education. Students can acquire this qualification by undergoing this program and passing the examination conducted by AICRA. Working professionals can also appear in this examination directly, provided they possess the requisite educational qualification as indicated below.

Pre-requisite:

  1. For students appearing through an institute Level 'O' / Government recognized polytechnic engineering diploma. Followed in each case, by an accredited 'A' level course 9no concurrency). A government recognized polytechnic engineering diploma after 10+2 / Graduate and an accredited 'A' level course in each case.
    Or,
  2. For students-at-large (Direct Applicants) Level 'O' / Government recognized polytechnic engineering diploma/ Graduate. Followed in each case, by one year relevant experience. The 'A' level diploma will awarded only after successful completion of the academic stream i.e. polytechnic engineering diploma after 10+2 or degree.
    Or,
  3. Any class students, who are member of AICRA certified NxR lab setup in academic institutions and cleared 'O' level certification .
