Course Description: This training program has been designed to provide a comprehensive guide to automation script writers with the skills they need to develop Business Automation Modules after completing the course. Sessions will be led and staffed by a team of veteran AssetWorks developers, to ensure that attendees have access to our subject matter experts as they work through the program. Attendees will be coached to develop automation scripts with the same techniques that AssetWorks engineers use.

After training, attendees will take the AssetWorks Automations Solutions Assessment, which consists of multiple-choice questions. Passing the assessment and receiving the AssetWorks Advanced Automation Solution Certification demonstrates that a developer has a clearly defined standard of knowledge and the skills required to develop automated business solutions for your AIM system.

Prerequisites: Attendees should have some experience with JavaScript and a basic understanding of AiM.
