FANUC ACADEMY

Overview

FANUC has been focusing its energy on training our customers, as well as domestic and overseas service personnel since its foundation, in order to promote automation and robotization in our customersʼ factories around the world.
In 1982, FANUC established FANUC Training Center which produced more than 100,000 graduates. In April 2019, we increased its scale and established FANUC ACADEMY as an education facility with enhanced content. FANUC ACADEMY offers training courses related to all of our products, from CNCs, servos, and laser oscillators to ROBOTs, ROBOMACHINEs, and FIELD system, and offers training courses ranging from two days to three weeks, according to the needs of trainees.
During the one-year period from April 2018 to March 2019, a total of 5,186 trainees attended from Japan and overseas.
In addition, FANUC ACADEMY is also working with training schools established in the United States, Europe, and China to build a system for conducting training based on FANUC's global standard. The ACADEMY is intended to nurture sophisticated customer service as it provides a high level of technical education to personnel in charge of training and service throughout the world.

FANUC ACADEMY

The robot education initiative was continued in fiscal 2019, with the FANUC ACADEMY giving factory tours to students from local technical high schools, providing them with opportunities to experience actual manufacturing sites first-hand.
The students presented this initiative to visitors at the opening seminar of the International Robot Exhibition 2019, which was very well received.

Respect for Trainee Diversity

Food served at the facility includes vegetarian items and gluten-free items.
