The Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) has opened its new online Academy to deliver a comprehensive programme of training courses, assessments and CPD for individuals, employers and training providers in the building services sector.
The BESA Academy will help employers and managers ensure their workforces are fully qualified and able to comply with legislation and industry standards. Individuals will be able to access resources needed to improve their existing skills and learn new ones while also keeping their qualifications and competencies up to date.
The online academy will make access to training easier, more flexible and, therefore, more appealing to a wider section of the population. All training modules are accessible from a smartphone, tablet or laptop whether the user is at home, at work or on the move.
The BESA Academy is also offering training providers the opportunity run their online learning elements of their courses on the BESA platform. This development could support many colleges who are currently wrestling with social distancing restrictions that limit the time students can spend on sites.
“Online learning really came into its own during the lockdown months,” said BESA President Neil Brackenridge. “It proved the value of being able to access course materials from anywhere and at any time, which is exactly the BESA Academy model.”
The Academy also aims to attract a new generation of engineers to the industry with younger people, in particular, used to accessing learning materials remotely and at their own convenience.
