Introducing service robots into a nursing home might be perceived as a bit challenging, due to the fact that the service robots represent a new technology. However, even though the service robots can perform complex tasks, the "Getting started" level is not difficult to achieve, thanks to the intelligent sensing and control system of the robots. On the other hand, advanced applications require more training to be capable of utilizing the robots' complex functionality. However, this is also fully achievable if you're familiar with the use of a normal smartphone.
The training courses are organized in our Nursing Home Lab, where you can do the practical exercises in an environment like a real nursing home. You'll use the KOMPAÏ Assist robot, a service robot which is currently operating in nursing homes in Central Europe.
Our trainers have expertise in service robots and experience from working in nursing homes. Thus, the training will both include practical operation of the service robot and give advice about how to incorporate the service robots as a natural resource, providing added value to the nursing home's daily workflow.
PPM offers training courses on multiple levels where you can naturally develop your skills at a pace that suits you.
Our standard courses cover the following levels:
- Level 1: Get familiar with the service robot and its various applications (1 day)
- Level 2: Basic operation and programming of the service robot (1 day)
- Level 3: Advanced operation and programming of the service robot (2 days)
And we can of course also tailor training courses to fit your specific needs.
