Distance Learning Courses

Learn online - any time any place using the Pitman Campus

Distance learning has become more and more popular in Ireland, as people are keen to progress their careers and try to fit training into their busy lives. Pitman Training Distance Learning gives you the flexibility to study online at home or from the office, but still retain the full support of our in-centre teams. This way it’s even easier for you to pick up and put down your course, and fit it into your life.

We appreciate that it isn’t always easy to get to a centre, but we don’t want that to stop you from learning new skills! With our distance learning courses you get the best of both worlds. Unlike any other online or distance learning training provider, Pitman Training has a national network of local Course Advisors, who will support you throughout your learning.

All of our course and Diploma range can be accessed via our Pitman Campus - our online learning portal. So whether you're looking at doing a course to top-up a specific skillset or you're studying a career-changing Diploma, you'll have one point of access for all your training. 


How it works

Online Distance Learning simply means that rather than doing your course in a Pitman Training Centre, you log on from home or work. It’s just like learning in a centre - except you’re not physically there! Your Course Advisor will give you your login information and you can then go away and work your way through the course(s) as you would do in a centre, but at a time and place to suit you. 

There is no need to purchase additional software materials or programmes to study, everything you need is on the Pitman Campus ready for you to pick up and get going. 

You still get all the learning materials to help you along the way when carrying out distance learning and you’ll have regular contact with our team who will make sure you’re on track. 

You’ll just need to need to pop into your nearest Pitman Training centre to take the exam (for most courses) but we’ll make this as convenient as possible. 

We hope this opens up new doors for you to develop your skills and look forward to helping you gain The Pitman Advantage from the comfort of your home or office.

Don't forget - if you'd prefer a dedicated study environment, you still have the option to study in one of our training centres. Or, you could combine the two and study some parts of your course online at home and come into one of our centres for other session. We call this combination a Blended Learning approach.
