Blended e-Learning platform
We offer accredited assessor training for those who are truly interested in skill development and career pathing. Our training can be accessed 24/7: 365 days of the year.
There are live e-tutorials each week to give you an opportunity to engage with your e-lecturer in real time. You will have the same number of contact hours as a learner who completes the training in a classroom, just you will have more flexibility.
The course material is a combination of e-learning and pre-recorded e-lectures that you work through systematically in your own time, at your own place and in your own space. You can repeat any lesson or video at any time, which is impossible to do in class. This means you can review difficult concepts slowly and often for deeper learning and insight.
Learners must have a PC or tablet (or smart phone, but this could be too small for effective learning) with sufficient internet connectivity to download the online learning materials and view videos.
