Worcester Online Training Academy hits early milestone

Published:  19 January, 2015

The number of installers to have signed up to Worcester, Bosch Group’s Online Training Academy has eclipsed 2,000, within just four months of its launch.

Worcester’s Online Training Academy focuses on keeping installers up-to-date with the latest product features, installation tips, and troubleshooting advice at their own convenience.

In addition to the range of e-learning programmes on offer, the front page of the Online Academy features an area where installers can view any recent YouTube videos from Worcester, as well as news alerts concerning new training courses available. Within their own personalised area, the installer can also review their training progress and download a printable certificate upon completion of each course.

Phil Bunce, training manager at Worcester, Bosch Group, said: “We are delighted with such a high level of early uptake among installers and believe that this shows the enthusiasm for development among industry professionals. With smartphones and tablets now essential components of an installer’s toolkit, we want to give installers more opportunity than ever to enhance their industry knowledge whenever it suits them best. Online training can never completely replace the hands-on equivalent, but it’s certainly a great option for those who wish to continually refresh their knowledge.”
