    FITS Online Course - More details

    The FITS online course, although run through the Open University does not carry any credits. Students are recommended to take the FITS practitioner exam to gain an NVQ equivalent qualification.

    The pilot starts on 24th January and will have a facilitator attached to each cohort who will lead the training. Depending on the take-up for the course there could be several cohorts of up to 30 people who will each have their own facilitator and discussion forum.

    The cost of the course is £195 and the examination fee (which is booked on the FITS website) is £197. The course fee does not include the hardcopy reference manual that face-to-face course attendees get but these can be ordered from the FITS website.

    At the end of the pilot phase, at the end of March, Vital and The FITS Foundation will evaluate how the course went and decide on whether and how to run further online courses.

    At this stage it will help us to get some indication from you guys whether an online course is preferable to a face-to-face one. I have been told by several technicians that getting time out of school is one of the biggest difficulties they face when requesting permission to take our courses.

    We want to provide training in the most convenient way and rely on input from you to guide us.

    Newsflash. FITS on-line pilot - registration extended to 31st January. For those who prefer to study on-line or struggle to get time-out from work. 2 hours study over 8 weeks. We know that budgets are shrinking so FITS shows you how to save money in your day to day operations. Block booking fee discounts for the pilot can be discussed directly with VITAL. A great interactive course, with opportunity to share and discuss how to improve your services with your peers throughout the UK and Europe! Fully facilitated by a qualified FITS trainer.
