BOSSIER CITY, La. – Air Force Global Strike Command Airmen were given the opportunity to learn how to get their time back thanks to a Robotics Process Automation course at the Cyber Innovation Center.

The 4-day event that ran from Jan. 31 to Feb. 3 sought to teach Airmen how to set up RPA “bots” that would automate processes for their work centers.  An example of a process that could be automated is the set up and scheduling of physical fitness exams for Airmen.

“The goal is to automate repetitive, time-consuming business processes to increase efficiency and save time,” said Dave Sorrels, lead instructor for the course.

The event was hosted by the Collaborative Environment, the operator of a Partnership Intermediary Agreement between CIC and AFGSC, and Air Force Life Cycle Management Center. The event was sponsored by the AFGSC Office of the Chief Scientist.

“We wanted to empower Airmen and allow them to learn from the experts,” said Jonas Kety, CE software developer. “This event shows that CE is more than just an innovation resource, we also help Airmen to grow at every level,”

The course is expected to become a yearly event hosted at CIC for AFGSC Airmen. To learn more about RPA, contact Jonas Kety at
