Why Professionals and Students Choose the Distance Learning Option

The EEC Academy has been specifically designed by the EEC Accredited Centre to facilitate the professional development of busy professionals who have limited time or are unable to travel to UK Universities where EEC courses are held. The Qualification and Course Programme has been released in line with government targets and in collaboration with leading British University Academics.

The online videos are direct footage of live classroom courses, so you will study the same content as in the classroom but at your own pace from your office, home and on-the-go.

-    Your personal lecturer will be a practising professional with excellent applied knowledge in their              subject area.
-    Collect CPD hours and ultimately achieve Mastership Status of the EEC
-    Study whenever and wherever you prefer, learn at your own pace and work around other                         commitments.
