The platform, which goes live later this summer, will provide installers with a convenient way to create a training account, view any available courses and dates, book a course, and view any courses booked, all via a smartphone, tablet or PC.
Installers can now pre-register themselves, along with four additional members of their team, to receive instant access once the system is launched.
“Installers are busy people who rarely sit behind desks,” said Nick Fothergill, Worcester Bosch’s national training manager. “It’s therefore important that they have easy access to the learning and development resources they need to stay ahead, regardless of where they are based.”
The e-Academy will allow installers to book training courses at one of Worcester’s four main academies in Worcester, Clay Cross, West Thurrock and Wakefield. Following the launch, installers will also be able to access a number of supplementary training materials, set goals and track progress to maximise the benefits of their training.
Mr Fothergill continued: “As the platform develops, we’ll introduce new functionality such as online courses and short videos so that installers can develop their skills at a time, and a place, to suit them.”
With more than 25 years’ experience in the provision of training services, Worcester Bosch offers a range of courses on all of the latest developments in heating technology, including gas boilers and heat pumps. It also provides training for ACS qualifications and the development of commercial skills.
