You don’t need us to tell you that in a few short months, integrity/inspection jobs have turned upside down.
We hope you’ve all stayed safe
We know it’s easy to say but the industry will fight back quicker than we all think.
We’ve motored throughout the lockdown and used the time wisely.
We’ve invested hundreds of hours into upgrading course material to make it suitable for online learning.
It’ll spice it up the classroom courses also…we’ve seen other trainers using dog-eared content that is years old.
Some training companies just upload existing classroom material for online training.
Nice try, but it’s as attractive as last night’s salad.
Our online courses are in full flow with new material (we never stopped)
We’d love feedback from delegates who are using our courses or have good/bad experiences with the whole on-line training experience elsewhere
Tell us any negative experiences and we’ll guarantee it doesn’t happen when you train with Wilkinson Coutts
We’ll add this feedback to our new courses
Yes, we’ve got stacks of courses not available elsewhere in UK.
We’re a compact business and move fast. API Source Inspector (SIFE) and API 1169 Pipeline Inspector courses are raring to go.
And we’re no fan of the 50-60% pass rates you see from some trainers.
We aim for the whacking 95%+ first time passrate we get on our existing API 510/570/653 courses.
There’s a smart new Wilkinson Coutts Wind Turbine Inspector course coming along too. Watch for further details later this week.
Here’s two training things we’ve seen in the industry:
1. Slides full of dull-as-ditch water bullet points. Anyone find them useful? Be honest.
2. Online test questions without explanation of the answers.
Pressure system written schemes of examination that never change are?
a. Great. They must be correct
b. Not great. They’re probably wrong
c. An invaluable aid to RBI
The answer’s (b). So we say.
But if there’s no explanation you don’t know why, so you’ve learnt nothing about our thinking behind it.
Test and exam answers are rarely absolute and they depend on the thinking behind things
SO, we’d love your feedback on your on-line training experiences.
Have you had problems learning from questions like this, or worse?
