Boost your Robotics and Automation skills with our new training line

With a host of advanced manufacturing companies now setting up base in the Marches, there is an urgent need to develop new skills around robotics and automation.

In-Comm Training is meeting this requirement head on with the launch of a new 7-axis robotic automation line at our Telford Academy, which will be completed in a few weeks.

This will provide learners with access to four Level 3 and Level 4 modular courses designed to introduce them to industrial robotic technologies and progress their technical skills to boost productivity.

Importantly, workers will be trained on Kuka robot and a single servo powered head and tailstock positioner.

The line also features an integrated Siemens PLC control system and a state-of-the-art ESAB MIG welding power source, fully integrated in a Kyrus guarding enclosure.

Investment through the Local Skills Improvement Fund (LSIF)

The new Robotic and Automation training line has been made possible by a £200,000 investment through the Local Skills Improvement Fund (LSIF) and the Marches Education Partnership.

We have also joined forces with Telford-based Bauromat UK to design the facility and come up with a solution that will give learners access to technology that is being used on shopfloors now and in the future.

Level 4 – Industrial Robotics
10 days – HNC accredited course


• A greater understanding of the electrical, mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic operation of common industrial robots

• Know how to select and programme an industrial robot for given requirements

• Be able to consider safety considerations

• Be able to assess the economic future of robot technologies in manufacturing

From getting started to more advanced skills

Our courses have been designed by talking to employers about what they need, so start with a Level 3 in Principles of Robotics for new entrants and then move on to Programming of Robots and a Level 4 Industrial Robotics HNC accredited course.

Learners will begin to understand how robots work, embracing the controlling principles and assessing health and safety considerations.

For the more advanced course, you will receive a more in-depth understanding of the electric, mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic operation of common industrial robots and, importantly, know how to select and programme them for shopfloor requirements.
