We understand how difficult it can be to commit to a course that requires attendance at a training centre or college on fixed dates and times, therefore we offer a more flexible approach to training for those of you who have busy lifestyles or simply cannot take time off from work.
This package provides the opportunity for you to study on any device (mobile phone, tablet or PC), anywhere at any time using our professional e-learning platforms, directed and supported by a dedicated personal tutor blended with traditional course book study.
The development of your practical skills in our training workshop and on-line examinations will require you to attend our training centre for 6 days and 6 mornings or 9 days, typically this would be delivered over a 12-18 week period but we offer this on a very flexible basis with attendance being programmed at mutually agreed times.
You will also be required to attend our centre for on-line examinations, once again these will be planned to take place at mutually agreed times.
No quiet time at home or elsewhere to study?
No problem, this training package allows you to use our training centre facilities to study in peace and quiet when you want and for however long you want, all we ask is that you contact us at least 24 hours in advance of your intention to study in the centre to make sure we have enough space for you, rarely a problem but we wouldn’t want to cause you any inconvenience.
This innovative, flexible approach to learning provides you with the added benefit of having an expert member of staff on hand to direct and support your studies if needed at no extra cost.
