Open Learning

LEEA’s organizational vision expects the Association to lift standards across the industry and across the world. Part of this is by developing training which reflects the needs of the industry and which corresponds to current and emerging best practice. LEEA also produces high quality guidance documents and conducts audits of our members.

This section of our website is intended to provide people working in the industry with useful short films to supplement their knowledge, access to LEEA training courses through our new state-of-the-art online Learner Management System and downloadable presentations. These films and presentations can be viewed individual or can be used as the basis for a team meeting. We will regularly add new content to the section as we hope to augment the skills and safety of the industry.

Feedback on our films and suggestions as to additional content should be sent to mail@leeaint.com
