AICRA Certified Technology Associate(ACTA)

ACTA certification serve as starting points for individuals interested in starting a career as a Robotics technology professional. The first level of AICRA certification can begin with ACTA for understanding of Robotics and Automation process and technology etc. Think of the Specialist as the foundation level of AICRA certification.

Many automation companies are embracing this certification to help them to be more productive and effective at delivering better business outcomes. ACTA certification is a job role focused certification and training program that helps Electronics, automation engineers to develop, advance, and validate their technical skill set, and enables them to help their automation organization meet changing business demands from technology transitions With ACTA certification, you will obtain the skills to perform entry-level provisioning and support of AICRA automation solutions.

Professional Certification

Robotics Literacy Programs (RLP)

Prerequisite

Degree Level None for certification: bachelor's degree may be preferred by employers
Degree Fields Engineering in Electronics & Communication or Mechanical
Experience Varies: at least 1-2 years

Prepare For & Take The AICRA Exam

Exam preparation can be accomplished through self-study with textbooks and practice exams, on-site classroom programs, online courses or concentrated boot camps offered through many venues, including AICRA authorized learning partners.

Many colleges offer programs designed to prepare students for the ACTA examination. These programs cover topics like Robotics fundamentals, automation concepts, along with the terminology and skills needed to pass the examination and achieve ACTA certification. Students may also consider bachelor's degree programs in related areas, such as Electronics & Communication.

AICRA certification exams may be taken at authorized test centers only. Candidates can register online up to six weeks in advance. Most exams can be completed in two hours. Labs may take as long as eight hours. Passing grades are based on current test scores, so the required minimum may vary from test to test. Certifications are valid for three years. Retaking the AICRA certification exam, passing a ACTA exam or completing a more advanced certification level may achieve recertification.
