Solar Thermal Hot Water
The award winning, forward thinking e-learning programme is aimed at colleges, training centres, apprentices and engineers who wish to advance their career and learn how to install solar domestic hot water systems.
It is based on fully interactive multimedia with audio, video, text using 2D and 3D animation and virtual reality. The programme consists of eight '‘tutorial-based' e-Learning modules with end assessments and five scenarios. Learners will be able to freely select the required module, learn about it using highly interactive sections and explore superb 2D/3D graphics and animations.
At the end of each module, they will undertake very carefully designed self-assessments to test their knowledge. Constructive feedback will be shown at the end including scores and recommendations.
Extensive content aligned to NVQ level II and technical certificate
Easy to follow, totally engaging enjoyable format
Interactive - using latest technology
