The latest enrolment stats for the LEIA Distance Learning course have once again bucked the trend for online learning.
Numbers of enrolments have remained consistently high since last year’s lockdown. Dan Charlesworth, Training and Safety Manager explains: “Last May we received an increase in online learners when staff were at home, some of whom were on furlough and looking for opportunities to upskill. So it’s encouraging to see these number remain consistent one year on, and that there is continued interest as we ease out of lockdown and return to work. Good luck to the May cohort.”
The LEIA Distance Learning course provides a technical training programme of study which aims to extend the candidate’s knowledge of lift and escalator engineering. It has been designed by, and for, the lift and escalator industry to address the difficulties created by a highly mobile workforce and the demands of changing British and European standards requirements. Enrolments for new students take place in January, May and September of each year.
This current cohort will also now receive the brand new Distance Learning certificates which have been updated to reflect the refreshed course content and units.
Any unit can be started at these times (Half and Full). Distance learning is open to both LEIA members and non-members.
