Our long distance courses are just as comprehensive as our classroom courses. You will receive two workbooks by post, attend online webinars, complete online course modules and assignments, use the software BluePoint VMS hands-on under the guidance of a qualified trainer and be able to watch supporting videos via our video streaming portal as and when needed.
You decide when you are ready to take your exam and there is no deadline. You will take the exam from the comfort of your home.
This long distance learning course takes students on average 6 months to complete and your UK International certificate will be posted to you upon course completion.
