"I found this course almost by 'accident' or perhaps fate! I began in January 2012 and have already booked other courses with The Essex Institute. The standard of teaching and quality of the course material gives full support to the student at all stages of study and development. This course has given me exciting new knowledge and understanding, already making improvements in my life. I also feel confident that my growing skills will directly benefit others. Truly an exciting road!"
- Jackie Staines


Online Study

Essex Institute Online Study

Super quality training in the comfort of your own home!

This series of classes allow you to participate live whilst settled in the comfort of your own home. Some of the classes will carry full diploma status, while others will provide professional certification valid for Continual professional Development.

Any of the online classes offered here can form part of our Online International Advanced Diploma course - click here for more information.


How does it work?

Online learning is very much the future for advanced techniques - and the material is identical to that delivered in the classroom. It also usually takes a similar amount of time, spread over several 'bite sized' tutorials (an online class is typically of 90 minutes duration.) You can still ask questions and ask for more explanation, just as you would in a physical classroom - there's nothing 'Lite' about it, and you save on travelling time and money.

To learn with Essex Institute Online, all you need to do is enter a web address we will give you into your browser, then sit back and view - nothing more complicated than that! And while you can see the teacher(s) they can't see you, so you can be totally relaxed, even watching in bed if you want to. All classes are recorded for later viewing, so if you're subject to a time-zone difference, you can still study with us - and this means that wherever you are in the World, you can study some of our unique courses and seminars.
