Distance Learning Courses

Our distance learning courses are designed for you to work independently through the course content, which is either presented online or in the form of printed workbooks.  Ideally, you should have a mentor from your workplace to support you with your learning, but if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

You can start our distance learning courses at any time throughout the year (ignore the December date) and work at your own pace.  We will keep in touch on a regular basis to check on your progress.
