Robotics for Education - FANUC CERT Program

Industrial robots training in the classroom can safely be achieved through the CERT Program. FANUC America provides the necessary training to the instructor as well as a curriculum to introduce students to robot applications including: integrated vision systems (iRVision), programming a logic controller, and using ROBOGUIDE simulation software.

Now more than ever, companies use robots and CNC technologies to maximize productivity and gain a competitive edge.

In today's market; however, many struggle to find qualified workers with the right technology skills.

Do You Have the Technical Edge?

The exciting world of advanced automation and industry 4.0 are paving the way for careers in robotics and the labor market is searching for people with the skills needed to work with the latest technologies. 

Manufacturers around the world are looking for CNC operators and programmers who love to work with their hands and are driven by problem solving.

Think Science, Technology

Whether you are a high school student, recent graduate, or someone looking for a new career, the time is right to consider robots and automation.

Where does zSpace fit?

zSpace gives students a safe and efficient way to apply theory by simulating a broad range of practical and complex tasks. At TechEd Products we help you create a mix of curriculum, simulation software, and simulation hardware to shorten the learning curve and allow your students to succeed in real-world applications sooner.



Some of our robotic customers are checking out zSpace laptops to their students, allowing them to practice a wide range of tasks from each area. Contact us at to see what distanced learning options are available on zSpace for your CTE program.


Industrial Robotics Expert by GTAFE allows students to bring the textbooks to life with a particular focus on preparing them for industry standards. Content includes electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, and pneumatic principles. Students will explore complex standards and explore how these principles work together.

Industrial Robotics Mechanic by GTAFE allows students to practice assembly/disassembly, with a particular focus on preventative maintenance, and common procedures for manufacturing robots. Students will practice daily, monthly and quarterly maintenance procedures in this self guided application.
