Industry 4.0 Is an Opportunity For People Who Want to Grow

Industry 4.0 is happening. While many jobs are being replaced by automation, there’s a whole new world of higher paying jobs opening up for workers who are willing to put in the effort to add value in this new world.

We at NCLab offer self-paced STEM training programs that help individuals grow in this new digital world. Our programs are not limited to exceptional individuals but rather they are inclusionary, to allow all interested individuals to learn and grow.

Can Your Institution Benefit From Partnering With NCLab?

Absolutely! With NCLab STEM training programs, you can provide trainees the knowledge, practical experience, competency, and confidence required to get high-demand jobs.

We use two primary partnering approaches to make our STEM training programs available. One involves adding NCLab STEM training programs to your Continuing Education offerings and having NCLab perform all of the training functions while the other involves NCLab training your instructors so that they can oversee, guide, and support trainees. This former approach is perfect as a way of measuring the demand for these programs while avoiding any upfront cost and instead increasing enrollment and generating new revenues.

 

NCLab STEM Training Programs

Following are short descriptions of NCLab’s STEM training programs.

“Computational Literacy For Modern Careers”

Automation is taking over manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, banking, retail establishments, logistics, and many other areas by storm. Tasks which traditionally were done by people are now being done by machines. But machines think differently than people, and one needs to develop a specific mindset in order to deal with them successfully. This is called Computational Literacy.

You may have heard about Digital Literacy. This is a set of skills which includes things like using Internet and email, utilizing passwords, protecting your data, etc. Computational Literacy goes one step further. It is about using computers and computing to solve problems. Computational Literacy is a combination of simple logic, common sense, problem solving, attention to detail, and perseverance. Computational Literacy can be learned, just like reading, writing, and using multiplication tables.

In the NCLab Computational Literacy For Modern Careers course, trainees develop computational literacy skills by using a virtual robot to solve various simple tasks. In this way they learn essential skills such as how to identify repeating patterns and how to break complex problems into simpler ones.

Upon completing the program, graduates possess the mindset and skills needed to successfully deal with robots and other intelligent machines.

Trainees need approximately 80 hands-on hours, based on their ability level, to complete this program. Since the program is self-paced, the completion time varies from trainee to trainee.

“Industry 4.0 Immersion Training”

“Industry 4.0 Immersion Training” goes beyond Computational Literacy and incorporates Spatial Literacy and Data Literacy.

Spatial Literacy (ability to “think in the 3D space”) is required in advanced manufacturing and construction, robotics, game design, engineering, architecture, and many other areas.

Data Literacy (how data is acquired, cleaned, stored, visualized, analysed, presented, and used to make better business decisions) applies in all enterprises, independent of size or line of business.

After completing this program, graduates possess strong computational skills, visual-spatial reasoning skills, and data literacy skills and they have the right skillset to grow in our new automation-based economy.

At the same time as they learn new hard skills, trainees develop important soft skills, including the ability to focus, pay attention to detail, communicate, solve problems, use logic and make correct decisions, plan ahead and do it right the first time, persevere, learn from failure, and adapt to changing conditions, among others.

Trainees need approximately 240 hands-on hours, based on their ability level, to complete this program. Since the program is self-paced, the completion time varies from trainee to trainee.

“Data Analyst Career Training”

At a time when virtually all enterprises have now reached “data overload” and need Data Analysts to help them make sense of the massive amounts of information so that management can make better and faster decisions, NCLab’s Data Analyst Career Training program makes it possible for individuals to land high-pay Data Analyst jobs. 

Whether it be market research, sales figures, logistics, or transportation costs, every business collects data. Data Analysts take that data and figure out a variety of things, such as how to price new materials, how to reduce transportation costs, or how to deal with issues that cost the company moneyThey can translate numbers and data into plain English in order to help management make better business decisions.

This training program consists of 4 or 5 college-level self-paced courses, depending on whether or not trainees have prior programming experience. Each course takes an average of 80 hours to complete. While the majority of our trainees complete the training program in well under a year and some complete it in as little as 6 months, trainees’ personal situation will determine how long it takes them to graduate.

The coursework includes Intro to Computer Programming, SQL Fundamentals, Advanced SQL, Python Fundamentals, Predictive Data Analytics with Python, Tableau, PowerBI, and a Capstone Project.

When trainees graduate, they have in hand a college-issued Data Analyst Career Certificate and a professional portfolio to demonstrate their qualifications to potential employers.

“Python  Developer Career Training”

At a time when indeed.com lists over 42,000 unfilled Python Programmer positions in the U.S., NCLab’s Python Developer career training program makes it possible for individuals to land high-pay Python Programmer jobs. 

Python is the most popular programming language for applications in Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Business, Finance, and other areas. Big players like Quora, Facebook, YouTube, SlideShare, Dropbox, Pinterest, Reddit, and Netflix have most of their new code written in Python.

This training program consists of 3 or 4 college-level self-paced courses, depending on whether or not trainees have prior programming experience. Each course takes an average of 80 hours to complete. While the majority of our trainees complete the training program in well under a year and some complete it in as little as 6 months, trainees’ personal situation will determine how long it takes them to graduate.

The coursework includes visual Intro to Computer Programming, Python Fundamentals, Advanced Python, Applied Python, Linux, Git and Github.

When trainees graduate, they have in hand a college-issued Python Developer Career Certificate and a professional portfolio to demonstrate their qualifications to potential employers.
