What is the difference among WMA, AIA and RPA career specialty programs?
WMA, AIA and RPA specialty programs all have some points in common (applications development) but they are different in purpose referring to the applications developed:
– WMA refers to applications that can be implemented and served for general purposes connected or not with business process automation solutions, for instance: dyTAB, dyBOX …
– AIA refers to applications, connected or not with processes that are based on AI technology. *
– RPA refers to applications that can be called robots, in other words, serving automated BPM process tasks and in our case fully integrated on the dyPAS (dynamic Process Application Server) framework.
The reason to separate these three specialty programs in different specialities is that they use different basic technologies and trainees can be more attracted by one or another specialty if they are separated.
Is the Career plan regarding the full-stack development?
Yes and no, it depends on the previous skills and the willingness of the candidate. The application of our technology to develop a new process class is essentially a zero-code and then a non-programming job. Our processes are mainly created by configuration, following relatively simple and common sense rules that everybody can understand after a training period and with some practice.
Therefore, the most important skills required to develop with success a new process class with our technology are two: 1) to have business knowledge in the particular area the process to be automated is related with and 2) common sense.
Nevertheless, when we have to interact with other applications like ERPs, CRMs, SCMs, databases, services, APIs … or to perform automatic tasks, we have to develop the corresponding integration and automation tools, what we call dyBOTs (dynamic robots) and dyCONs (dynamic connectors) servicing different entity-action methods. For that development, yes, programming skills are required.
In addition to that, we are continuously adding new functionalities to our dyPAS platform and that also requires analysis and programming capabilities. We have specific specialty training programs designed for those of our trainees that after the first BPM-RPA-AI business process automation solution training program would like to focus on programming work.
I am particularly interested in Machine learning and Data jobs but I am curious about your programme and I would like to try it to find out if I am interested
Referring to your particular areas of interest, just a comment, business process automation is a huge source of very detailed and useful operating data for any company.
That’s why process data mining, its analysis and the implementation of the corresponding reactive actions will be one the biggest applications for technologies like big data, analytics, AI and machine learning.
We have future plans to work on this areas being our main interest to develop process real-time automatic optimization technologies by using the different technologies mentioned before.
For the indicated hours requirement for each Career plan level, is the number of hours really what is required or is it the added value I should be getting? I believe there would be candidates of different levels and some would be capable of achieving faster than others, not that I classify myself in any category of the two.
That’s a very good question. Business process automation is a very specific area of knowledge where a very wide combination of skills is required to be successful but, in our opinion, the two most important ones are business knowledge and common sense.
The training program is designed to give the trainees the basic elements to be able to build her / his first BPM-RPA-AI process class from scratch by using our zero-code > non-programming technology. This can be considered as full added value due to the fact that, most probably, for all the trainees, the program content will be a new area of knowledge.
As no programming but only configuration is involved, no previous technical knowledge is strictly required but, of course, convenient to better understand the full picture.
By the other side, our methodology is essentially learning by doing and this aspect reinforces the idea that what you’ll do in the program is more important that the previous technical background you could have.
The progress of each trainee is measured by objective tools (tests), practices and the final project to build her / his process class. Of course, other more subjective things as attitude, motivation, collaboration spirit, communication skills … are taken in account.
What is the required dedication and time schedule for a part time presentialy modality?
For working on a part-time modality the recommended dedication will be around a 20 – 25 hours a week.
Since a lot of trainees are regularly coming to Barcelona, we are organizing two shifts, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You will receive your assignment before coming to Barcelona.

Your career plan program, is it an education or internship program?
Our career plan on BPM-RPA-AI business process automation solutions development can be both: it is an education program although not regulated and then without official value, but it can also be considered as an internship program (paid and not paid depending on the level) since we can establish an agreement with the school or the university where the participant is enrolled in a course that requires an in-company internships or end-of-career projects that can be carried out within a company.
At that respect, in fact, most of our trainees follow the Intro and Basic level of our career plan under the umbrella of the Erasmus program.

Yes, based in your logged time spent as seen in the Timesheet report.
And what are my screenshots of to-do tasks for?
To know if you have created the ToDo list by following the instructions in:
And to know if you are using it correctly as indicated in:
The ToDo filter is helpful because you can also filter your tasks by its Due Date. That’s why I am also asking for each trainee to set the due dates correctly.
Do I present these screenshots at the end of my internship?
The screenshots are to be attached to the task that I will assign to you tomorrow. I just want to see something like this: image.png
Then if I fail the final exam for any reasons, can I do it again?
Redo the tasks corresponding to the failed questions and redo the exam.
My university usually ask students to bring an acceptance letter in order to provide any kind of documents for Erasmus internship. Will you provide this acceptance letter?
Yes, sure this is the normal practice for all our trainees that are enrolled via the Erasmus program.
Can you send me spanish training agreement? Because spain embassy ask me.
We don’t translate the training agreement because it is not our document and it is signed by three parts which means the translation will have no value.

Apart of your identification documents, you will have to provide the Erasmus learning agreement duly signed and the Erasmus acceptance letter.
In some cases, you could be required to provide the acceptance translated into Spanish. We will only translate and sign again the letter of acceptance due to the fact that it is our document.
Third party documents like Erasmus learning agreement we will not be translated by us because it has to be signed also by the university and the university will not accept to sign in Spanish and is not a requirement as commented above. If it is finally required, the preparation of a translation of the signed learning agreement will be under the trainee’s responsibility.
If the VISA you require is for a period higher than 90 days you will have to provide wet signed original and photocopy of the above documents. We are not going to send originals documents but the trainee can send a courier to collect them from our office.
As we are not an official education centre then we can’t provide any register code as education centre. We are not providing an insurance, then this request is under the trainee responsibility.
Would I need the NIE* for this internship?
The answer is no, even in cases wherein you would like to attend the training course living in Spain, you don’t need it because the Intro and Basic levels of our training program are not a job and are not paid. You have just to consider the maximum number of continued days you can stay legally in the country, depending on your nationality and your VISA.
By the way, obtaining a student VISA to come to Spain is a very simply procedure when you want to stay till 90 days and little bit more complicated when you want to extend to 180 days.
* Note: NIE Spanish Identification number for foreigners) is the equivalent to the Green card for Spain.
Would I be able to get the NIE* through the training program stage?
The easiest and quickest way to obtain a NIE* is being enrolled as a student in a Spanish school or university or via an Erasmus internship coming from a foreign university or school. If that’s your case, we will be willing to sign the corresponding internship agreement with your school or university.
Coming to Spain and getting a NIE* as a worker is more complicated and depends on your nationality, essentially, being or not EU citizen. The following links can help you in the process to obtain the NIE*:
* Note: NIE = Spanish Identification number for foreigners). It is the equivalent to the Green card for Spain.
