Rockwell Automation has started its 2016 series of technical education events for North America. Called Rockwell Automation on the Move (RAOTM), this year's focus is on linking intelligent assets and optimizing industrial operations to help make customers more globally competitive and productive.
Attendees at RAOTM will gain valuable information and training on how to modernize and streamline operations, as well as practical experience working with Rockwell Automation products, services and solutions through demonstrations, technical education sessions and hands-on labs.
The first event in the series was hosted May 4-5 in Pittsburgh. "I attended the hands-on labs to gain valuable experience that I can use in the workplace. I also learned more about Rockwell Automation products. I plan on attending more of these events in the future," said attendee Butch Thompson, project engineer, Mylan.
Geared toward manufacturing and production professionals, equipment builders and system integrators, attendees can earn professional development hours (PDH) for attending educational sessions.
The upcoming RAOTM events are being hosted throughout the United States and Canada, with sessions being presented by technical professionals from Rockwell Automation and its PartnerNetwork program. Here are the dates and locations:
