What is an IET Academy course?
Courses cover a range of technical subjects and soft skills. They range up to 30 hours long and can be purchased in full or in shorter units depending on your learning needs.
You can access your course content for 12 months, after which time you will be required to renew your course if you wish to retain access to the content. Course material is reviewed regularly and updated as and when required to ensure it reflects the most up-to-date content.
How do I find the right course?
From the home page search bar or black subject buttons you can find a course that suits your learning needs.
To help you decide if the course is right for you, each course page displays the course level and length (in hours).
Course highlights, learning outcomes, unit titles and any knowledge prerequisites can also be found here.
How do I buy a course or unit?
Once you’ve found the course/unit(s) you wish to study, add them to your shopping basket.
It is also possible to pre-order courses ahead of their launch date.
