Alert Innovation will launch a training and career development organization focused on its Alphabot robotics solution, offering interactive programs covering topics including safety, basic operation, troubleshooting, preventive maintenance, overall system management and detailed servicing for experts. The training is designed for retail associates, managers and third-party service providers.
The Alert Innovation Academy begins with training on the Alphabot system, an integral part of the Novastore supermarket concept, which uses automated retrieval of consumer packaged goods while providing customers with the ability to choose fresh items such as produce, meat, baked goods and flowers. Trainees will then be able to take advantage of career paths leading to Robotics Technician One and Two designations.
“We are excited to offer Alert Innovation Academy as an automation career development path for traditional retail associates,” said John Lert, Founder and CEO of Alert Innovation in a statement. “We view the Academy as just one part of a whole new ecosystem that automation is driving, including manufacturing, engineering, quality, service and more. Our ability to train and develop the professionals needed to support that automation ecosystem will drive expansion and create job growth.”
