About the IET Academy

The IET Academy provides in-depth e-learning for engineers.

What is the IET Academy?

The Academy is the IET’s dedicated e-learning platform. It provides in-depth training across a variety of technical engineering and professional development topics, through fully online courses that can be accessed at any time.

Why choose e-learning?

  • Make your training fit your schedule – fit course modules around your day with flexible access to course content when it suits you best, via your desktop or our handy mobile app.
  • Learn effectively – with rich multimedia and interactive content designed to work for a range of different learning styles, you can be assured that the training will meet your needs.
  • Gain confidence in your expertise – with proven understanding of the course content, through mini tests throughout courses and a final assessment to ensure you have fully embedded your learning.
  • Save time and travel costs – you are not tied to a specific time and don’t face commuting challenges, as e-learning can be undertaken from home, the office, or anywhere you choose!
  • Personalise your training to meet your needs and save money – with each course unit available separately, you can pick and choose units that will benefit you the most, if a full course isn’t relevant. Mix units and full courses as you go to make the most of your training.
  • Control the pace of your learning – as courses are not tutor-led, you control the pace at which you move through the units.

Why choose the IET Academy?

  • Learn from the best – we don’t partner with generic training developers; instead, each of our content partners are selected for their knowledge and expertise in their fields, providing the highest quality training in each topic area. Our qualification-based courses are also endorsed by City & Guilds.
  • Easy to use – our courses sit on the award-winning Cross Knowledge learning management system (LMS), which provides user-friendly training software, so you don’t need any technical expertise to get the most out of your training.
  • Boost your CV – each of our courses and units comes with a certificate of completion that you can add to your LinkedIn profile, use as proof of your Continuing Professional Development (CPD), or show current or future employers to prove your knowledge.
