The MLM (Manual Lifting Machines) will be introduced in November, followed by the BGC (Bridge & Gantry Cranes) course in December of this year.
The first courses to arrive on LEEA’s website, as part of the Academy 2.0 project were EUG (End User Guidance), as an open link at leeaint.com accessible by all, and the ILE (Introduction to Lifting Equipment) course, available to LEEA members in the ‘Members area’ of leeaint.com. They were introduced on 7 July 2022 – Global Lifting Awareness Day.
With all courses available on LEEA’s new e-Learning platform, members can carry out their training when they want, how they want and for as long as they want. The platform is suitable for any device and has an offline study capability with auto-sync updates once back online.
LEEA has made a substantial investment into a technology upgrade in its Huntingdon training centre, making e-learning a real option for learners. Now equipped with high tech cameras, speakers, microphones and other equipment enabling, LEEA staff can hold classes with delegates from across the world and deliver training via Zoom with maximum effectiveness.
Holders of the LEEA’s new ‘smart’ TEAM Card, which provides instantly verifiable data when required, will have any new qualifications updated by the LEEA team when changes occur.
