“I was looking for a training course in energy management with some credibility. My search coincided with the launch of the EI’s elearning programme. It was perfect for me, offering the right length of study over a flexible period. It’s been a long time since I last studied and I found each module really interesting. If I came across any sections I needed more support with, I was able to speak with the tutor online and by phone.” - Dean Noden, Sales and Marketing Director, Enercom

"Not only was the course interesting and informative, it was written in a way that was suitable for a beginner - the perfect introduction to energy management. The online centre made communication fast and easy and the tutors were readily contactable and extremely helpful. I would give the course a 10/10 and would recommend it to anyone interested in energy." Joseph Hargreaves, Corporate Governance, Inteb
