Grant launches online learning academy
Heating technology manufacturer Grant has launched its new eLearning Academy for those working in the plumbing and heating, architectural and construction sectors in Ireland.
The new online learning platform currently features health and safety advice and a CPD (continued professional development) course, available to architects, engineers and BER assessors. Further Grant product and installation focused courses will be available in the coming weeks. The course portfolio is suitable for plumbers, installers, BER assessors, architects, specifiers, engineers, electricians, merchants and builders.
Grant said that the launch of the eLearning platform is ”another step forward in demonstrating Grant’s commitment to innovation in providing on demand training and resources to those interested in continuous learning”. Having welcomed those working in the trade and in the construction sector to its dedicated training facilities in Birr, Co Offaly for many years, Grant will continue to provide on-site training, once government guidelines allow, with the new virtual training offering working alongside this to provide a hybrid solution for participants.
Commenting on the launch of the Grant eLearning Academy, Keith Scully, Grant technical sales and eLearning Academy trainer said: “Having worked on the development of the new eLearning Academy for the last year, we are delighted to now see it up and running. Operating on its own dedicated platform, each course and resource has been carefully developed to the highest standard. It has always been a key priority to provide our dedicated network of installers, engineers and plumbers, to name just a few, with all the necessary training they need to help advance their skills and knowledge on our industry and our innovative product range.”
The Grant eLearning Academy features a catalogue of both on demand and instructor led courses which vary in both content and form, allowing those in the trade to tailor their training to best suit their requirements. On demand courses will allow students to work through the content at their own pace at a time that is right for them. Meanwhile, the instructor-led courses will feature real-time tuition provided by one of Grant’s dedicated technical trainers. In addition, the eLearning Academy is also the home of other useful resources including various news articles and guides to help heating professionals further their learning beyond the virtual classroom.
