ABB robotic arm

Motlow is the only college in the nation licensed to train for the Top 3 robotics manufacturers in the world. ABB Robotics is a pioneer in robotics, machine automation and digital services, providing innovative solutions for a diverse range of industries, from automotive to electronics to logistics. As one of the world’s leading robotics and machine automation suppliers, ABB Robotics employs more than 11,000 people in 53 countries and has shipped more than 500,000 robot solutions. Credentials for ABB Robotics training programs take one week or less to complete. Classes are scheduled based on demand from companies across the U.S. Pricing is the same as it would be at ABB University. Most of our students are working in an industry already using ABB robots and therefore employers usually pay for their workers to take the ABB Robotics series.
