Why Distance learning might be for you

So you're intrigued by what Distance learning is but need a little more convincing? Look no more; you are in the right place!

So you're intrigued by what Distance learning is but need a little more convincing? Look no more; you are in the right place!

 

What is Distance learning?

 

Distance learning is the ultimate independent format. It is designed for learners who want to do all the learning themselves. All the course notes and materials are available for download and printable forms.

 

This is especially relevant to learners without an active internet connection. But the Distance format is always tailored to work around more traditional learners with an impressive level of self-motivation. 

 

In short and simple terms, we provide you with all the materials, and you learn your way, at your pace, at a distance. 

 

For any course studied in the Distance format, learners will get; 

  • A personalised learning map to help guide and navigate you through the course
  • Progress checks to keep you on track with your studies.
  • Engaging, multimedia-rich materials that keep you focused and help you learn
  • Interactive activities to test your understanding in a real-workplace situation
  • A digital resource hub for instant access to extra support material
  • Revision webinars for help with more complex topics and assessment guidance
  • Access to discussion forums for support from other learners and NEBOSH alumni
  • Support from our technical and customer support team

 

How to start your NEBOSH Diploma distance learning

What are the benefits?

 

  • There are no deadlines (apart from assessments): You work at your speed, learn your way. No tutors are asking for your homework; you are responsible for your studies. 
  • Learn your way at your pace: the flexible nature of the Distance format offers complete control to the learner. You are your own master.
  • Hard copy notes: If you are a learner who prefers to read rather than watch or listen, Distance learning is the most obvious choice. Learners absorb information in many different ways. The beauty of the Distance format is that you strip it all back and bring out the highlighter and get on with the course that way. 
  • No internet connection required: Many Distance learners prefer the format because they are overseas and prefer the hard copy notes without the internet. Data fees can also be a big reason for the demand for the Distance format.
  • Cheapest format: One obvious plus is the price. It is often the most affordable format of any course we offer. 

 

So there you have it! Distance learning is not for everyone; it requires high motivation to get work done on your own. The price and flexibility around the format make it a popular choice around the globe. If you think this format is for you, don't hesitate, your future is right in front of you; seize it!
