Are there any websites that offer any form of useful online training, being busy this would be an ideal solution.

Hi
I totally agree with you. As we are so busy at work, we can take the online training at home after work. The course may hold by parties in different countries. We do not need to go there to attend the class. It’s high efficiency to upgrade ourselves.

hello Lister,
I agree with both of you. But I think you should be more specific about the online training you wish to take - discipline and level (degree, masters etc.)

Hi
I am also looking for online/Distance learning degree in Mechanical Engineering because I am working professional and can’t attend regular classes.

Interesting question!!

At the last Plant Council Meeting we were discussing this very topic combined with CPD (Continuous Proffessional Development). How and where you receive the learning will be down to the individual to resource. However a suitable E-mail to the staff at HQ may be the best way forward. One of my colleagues on the Council works at Blackburn College and is very familiar with the requirements and what the colleges (Academic Institutes) can offer. I will send an E-mail and see if we can get some help on the subject.

Best Regards

Dave

Dear all,

As suggested already the best source of information is SOE HO, contact the Professional Standards Manager. Individual further learning can be a minefield, as someone esle has pointed out no all OU courses will lead to EC accreditation. The important point is to try and gather as much information on what you want to do, then we can be more specific in answering your detailed enquiry. I can not stress enough that CPD is an individual thing and it is important to record your details, all to often the Membership Marking panel is confronted with applicantions for upgrade but no mention of CPD.

I am more than happy to assist anyone with individual questions, but as I said above the Professional Standards Manager is the best port of call.

PS The tip reference Blackburn College is a very good starting point, I do recommend the training at this College.

Roddy,

Sound advice. Its interesting to read the importance that assessors place on CPD. I wonder how many members (and Proffessional Sector Council Members) keep their CPD records up to date? That reminds me I better get mine up to date!

Many Thanks for the response.

Best Regards

Dave

I was wondering if somebody can help me confirm the accreditation of these schools: (1).. Commonwealth Open University and (2) St. Clements university.
