Five reasons to learn online

  1. Flexible - you choose when and where you study, meaning online learning can fit around existing home and work commitments.
  2. Personalised support - you'll get time with your tutor with no disruptions from other students.
  3. Self-paced - work through the course material at your own pace and revisit topics or pause study for additional research.
  4. Improve your CV - online learning demonstrates self motivation, time management and digital skills, which employers love.
  5. Save money - with no need to attend a classroom, you'll save on commuting costs.

How it works

Each course has an estimated course length; during this time you will read a variety of course materials, complete practical activities and carry out additional research until you undertake an online exam to complete the course.

You will be assigned a dedicated tutor, who you can discuss course content with, plus an online support team who can help with any technical issues.


Online-only courses are delivered by our iTrain team.

They provide outstanding customer service and support from application to completion.
