What is the difference between Virtual and e-Learning?
The UK’s most respected and recognised courses are delivered in an interactive, live online classroom by our expert trainers. IOSH, NEBOSH, IEMA, ILM CITB and many more of the world's most well-known courses can all be delivered virtually.
Pre-recorded modules and downloadable assets allow you to study for your qualification in your own time, wherever you are.

The TSW Online Learning Environment
We use a range of software to deliver your virtual learning.
When you sign up for a course, you'll get instant access to our exclusive learning platform. The TSW Online Learning Environment extends your learning experience, so we can continue to support you when you're back at work, applying what you've learnt. Each course contains a wealth of resources, specific to your training journey, including:
- Pre-event information
- Power Point presentations used during the course
- Guides and factsheets
- 'Bites' of theory
- Links to further reading and other media
- Assessment guidance and support
Once you've logged in, there's a module showing you how to access your course using your unique TSW account and username, and Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams is an engaging, seamless and easy-to-use video calling software, that allows you to see and talk to everyone on the call.
What is distance learning?
Distance learning is online learning, where you sign up for a training course remotely and learn from wherever you are in the world. At TSW Training we offer you two types of distance learning: e-learning and virtual. To access our distance training, you need to use your internet-connected device to join one of our courses. We give you access some of world’s best courses from your laptop, phone or desktop computer. In 2020, we launched our suite of virtual courses, so that everyone can continue to access training when they’re working from home.
A supportive learning experience
We use a variety of techniques to support your e-learning, so you get as much from the course online as you would face-to-face. We use interactive whiteboards to demonstrate the course content, and offer you the chance to watch videos, read through slides and much more to bring course materials to life.
You're not passively watching an instructional film from the archives – you'll join a live virtual classroom, chat to the trainer and meet your classmates
An interactive virtual forum
You’ll also see, hear and speak to your trainer and classmates real-time. You have the chance to play games and do group activities, discuss and get a real-world understanding of the course materials.
