I appreciate the tutor support I have received; the explanation to my questions has helped me tremendously. Fernando Molina, Project Controls Engineer, Global Industries, Online distance learning delegate

Online distance learning

We offer two methods of learning, face-to-face and online distance learning. Online distance learning courses have all the benefits of a classroom course but give delegates the flexibility to study when and where they want. Choose a specific start date to fit around projects or personal life, or gain instant access if required. We monitor progress and send update reports to help engineers and managers to keep on track. Plus, our expert tutors are on-hand to provide support, answer questions and give guidance on technical queries.

How it works Each course takes 12 weeks to complete and delegates should allow for 30-40 hours of learning time. Delegates complete the course at their own pace with support from our tutors via the online tutorial forums. Delegates receive 12 weeks of unlimited access to specialists in the field of subsea engineering. Our online learning system is easy to use and interactive, providing an effective learning platform. Key features include: Easy navigation to track progress Optional voice commentary to teach complex topics An interactive glossary of terms to facilitate access to key information Interactive diagrams to clearly illustrate key learning points Playback to allow the re-play of slides, movie clips or whole modules Online discussion forums to share experiences with fellow delegates from around the world The ability to ask questions or check progress via the online tutorial forum Detailed notes give supplementary information if required Please visit www.jee.co.uk to view a demonstration of our online distance learning courses.

Tailored courses If online distance learning is your company’s preferred course delivery method, modules can be selected from our standard online courses to create a tailored online programme. Call us on +44 (0) 1732 371 369 to discuss your requirements.
