The ARM Institute, with input from its nearly 400 member organizations, has established a framework of competencies that outlines the skills you need to perform in your desired career in robotics. This framework acts as a set of building blocks, in which each set of skills builds upon the previous set.

This framework, just like the other features on the site, is designed to help you plan out your ideal robotics career path in manufacturing! You can use the industry-vetted list of robotics skills to acknowledge what may be missing from your repertoire as you move forward in your manufacturing career. The ARM Institute leverages this framework when we add new robotics training programs and job openings. If a training program does not teach one or more of the above competencies, then it is not relevant to manufacturing in robotics and is not listed on

The competencies listed as part of each training program are then used in the Guided Search feature. You can select which competencies you want to learn, along with other parameters such as location and credential earned, and the platform provides a set of personalized matches unique to your needs. Below, you will see the screen from the Guided Search feature. The first step is to select which competencies you’re interested in learning.
