Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What’s the most cost effective route to e-learning?
A: The Housing e-Academy offer a number of options for bulk purchasing e-learning. Memberships are our most popular way to introduce e-learning into your organisation, but if you let us know what courses you are interested in and for how many staff, we will always provide a bespoke quote with the most cost effective option outlined.
Q: How long does it take to get going?
A: How soon would you like it? A huge benefit of e-learning is that it can be accessed almost immediately. If you are purchasing individual courses, we can provide you with log in details straight away. If you are bringing membership on board for your whole organisation and haven’t used e-learning before we would advise you have an induction day with the Housing e-Academy (free as part of your membership) before starting. All in all it’s a very quick process and if we are aware of any deadlines you have, we can work together to help you meet them.
