    Hi All

    I hope you are well. Quick question.  What courses would you recommend following on from the BP Foundation training. 
    I'm looking for one that has good hands on and at a good pace just so I can continue my journey.

    I've checked Udemy and Corsera but not sure which one is a good choice and wondered if any of the great people in this community have tried any.

    Also how they compare to the Foundation training as I always think this is the best run course out there.

    Your thoughts are truly appreciated.

    Kind regards

    I think this all depends on where you want to specialise or where you want to take your career. As a long-term developer, the Professional Developer exam and follow-up Blue prism exams (architect, etc) are a good starting point but only if you plan to stay within Blue Prism. Training material is in the Blue Prism University site.

    Other than that, what parts of Blue Prism are you most interested. There are loads of courses covering VB, C# and JSON/API architecture dependent on your preference. Both Udemy and Corsera have multiple courses on each subject. Training from competitors RPA might also be interesting as they take different approaches to some problems, which can be useful when problem solving in Blue Prism

    Hi John

    I hope you are well today. Thank you for your reply. 

    I'm still new to RPA and Blue Prism. I've been doing it for 6 months now and really enjoy it as its such a new area of technology for me. 
    With regards to where I want to specialise or to take my career I'm not sure yet as its all so new to me. 

    I'm currently in a Support role but  don't think I'm going to stay dong this for the rest of my career so I'm thinking along the lines of Dev. Support will probably give me a good insight into how it all works etc  but I want to get further in it. 

    I'm really interested in AI and the OCR aspect of things and the other function's that Blue Prism can perform.  But maybe I need to focus on getting the basics under my belt to a good degree before planning  on changing my career path first ??

    We support UI Path as well but I'm not supporting this and from what  I've seen of it I don't really like it.

    Again, thank you for getting back to me. 

    Kind regards

     I recommend Blue prism academy's own complementary courses, I would focus on courses according to your role (analyst, developer, etc.).
    A free playlist that also has several cool classes is this:

    Hello @John Conway - I'd recommend to start off with foundation courses on Blue Prism University Portal :

    Blue Prism Foundation Training :§ion=courses

    Working with different application types and spy modes:§ion=courses

    Creating a Blue Prism Process :§ion=courses

    There's a Blue Prism tutorial course on youtube and it covers pretty much everything from development point of view if you are beginner :

    Hi John conway,

    As other members mentioned it depends on where you want to take your career,If you are initial stage I would recommend to start with this video's( Although these are very old it will help to understand about BP)_

    if you prefer more kind of learning by reading follow the BP documentation.

    I would suggest to target BP certification - It will help you to understand different concepts  and how to use it in real time.

    Note: Since Blue Prism releases version7 I  think they might introduce new certification for version 7 but I suggest start with the developer course provided in the link  since you already completed Foundation course  to my understanding Developer course  would be the next step if you are leaning towards developer..

    If I answered your query. Please mark it as the "Best Answer"
