TWI’s ground-breaking blended learning service, the TWI Virtual Academy, is already

CSWIP Senior Welding Inspector. Pre-course learning for
CSWIP Welding Inspector will be added soon, with other new courses set to be introduced

A number of candidates have already achieved certification through TWI’s eLearning
programmes. The first group graduated at the end of 2015, with candidate
Paul Chapman praising the eLearning section for being ‘easy to navigate, with concise
information sections and tests to verify understanding before moving on’.
eLearning is an excellent option for candidates who wish to minimise time away from
the office. Using materials at the same high standard as TWI’s classroom resources,
but with the added flexibility of being completed online, it’s a great option for
anyone who might struggle to commit the time for an entirely classroom-based course.
The high quality of the TWI Virtual Academy eLearning resources has attracted interest
from several companies across various industry sectors. Its modular nature means
sections can easily be incorporated into internal training packages, and TWI can
create dedicated pages on its learner management system for any company that wishes
to benefit from the materials.
