Automation Is an Opportunity For People Who Want to Grow.

Automation 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 learn-by-doing skills training programs that help individuals grow in this new digital world. 

We team up with Educational organizations of all types, Employers, Workforce Development Initiatives, Libraries, and High Schools to make our training programs available.

NCLab Skills Training Programs

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

“Computational Literacy For Modern Careers”

Computational Literacy 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, you use a virtual robot to solve various simple tasks. In this way you learn essential skills such as how to identify repeating patterns and how to break complex problems into simpler ones. Upon completing the program, you have acquired the mindset and skills needed to successfully deal with computers and other intelligent machines.

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

If you have the capability to learn and the desire to grow, this training program is for you, independent of your formal education.

You need approximately 60 hands-on hours, based on your ability level, to complete this program. The actual time taken to complete the training varies, depending on how many hours your schedule allows you to allocate to your training, but because the training is self paced, you never miss training sessions because of family and work requirements.

“Computational On-Ramp Training”

Automation is taking over manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, banking, retail, logistics, and many other areas by storm. Tasks that traditionally were done by people are now being done by computerized equipment, but machines require numerous forms of human assistance to do work.

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 learn and grow in this new world.

This training gives you the computational, math, data, and spatial skills you need to join the 21st century work environment, independent of the career you choose to pursue. After all, automation is everywhere and computational, math, data, and spatial skills are considered must-haves by employers.

You need approximately 160 hands-on hours, based on your ability level, to complete this program. The actual time taken to complete the training varies, depending on how many hours your schedule allows you to allocate to your training, but because the training is self paced, you never miss training sessions because of family and work requirements.
