About The Course

Course Overview

Online Live Classroom

With ETT, it is now possible to complete our courses in the comfort and safety of your home or office.  Online learning, especially when its live and interactive, is the safest way to overcome the restrictions and risks that COVID 19 has imposed upon learners who need to keep up to date with industry standards.  While there is a place for pre-recorded webinars, we believe that joining other learners in a secure training environment is a more effective way of getting to grips with complex technical subjects.  Live online training provides learners with an opportunity to listen, share and engage in the experiences, feedback and questions of other learners, while working towards achieving an industry approved qualification.

What to expect

We will send you a learning pack in the post with everything you will need on the day of the course. Don’t worry if you aren’t confident with computers, all you have to do is click a link and enter a few details to join the online classroom.  When the live classroom finishes, we’ll provide you with further guidance and resources for revision and exam preparation.
