Instructor Led Training

We offer instructor led training at our training centre in Huntingdon, UK or we can deliver it at your location worldwide.

Huntingdon Training Centre

Our purpose built training centre offers comfortable classrooms, a workshop and break out areas. Refreshments are provided throughout your course, but we ask students to bring their own lunch or make use of the local shops.

Your Company Location

We can deliver our courses on your premises or a nearby venue.

Combined Member Training Events

Throughout the year we hold a number of training events in different countries which are open to members and those registered with us as Individual Trainees to attend.

It is a great way to access instructor led training in your region whilst sharing the cost with other members.

We will email your company’s LEEA contact with further information and upcoming dates in your region when this option is available.

Zoom Training

Our Zoom learning courses, enables instructor led training for all LEEA courses, excluding our Mobile Cranes (MOB) via distanced learning. 

These courses are delivered over specific course dates (3 days for Foundation, and 5 days for the Diplomas). 

To attend these, students need access to a PC or laptop and Zoom (they do not need to hold a full account with Zoom as they can access the course link via a browser). 

Blended Learning

Blended learning combines our e-Learning and Instructor Led delivery methods.

Students study the course online and then attend a 1 or 2 day instructor led session for a re-cap with questions and answers, prior to sitting their assessment. 


Continual Professional Development

We support continual professional development (CPD) with our refresher training courses, which TEAM Card holders are required to take every 3 years. 

Our TEAM cards are issued to students who have passed our Advanced Programmes or previous Diplomas. They provide evidence of qualifications and identity, and are recognised by CSCS.
