Mitigating Coronavirus Disruption with E-learning

The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) has announced plans to focus on E-learning as the delivery method for its CPD and Accredited Training for the global lifting sector during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

As countries ramp up their efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it is clear that growing numbers of people will be self-isolating, with educational establishments closing and companies –­ including many within the lifting sector, asking employees to work from home as part of the global effort to deal  with the severe health crisis.

LEEA will be carrying on “as normal” during this health crisis, taking all necessary precautions in delivering face-to-face training. However, the organisation anticipates e-learning will be an option many are likely to consider at this time.



Most of the association’s broad range of training courses are available online, offering a number of benefits such as allowing individuals to study at their own pace and at times that suit them. The courses are not restricted to defined term times and can be commenced whenever it suits an individual. All an e-learner needs is Internet access on a PC, laptop or tablet. Course materials are available to download and an assessment venue and date can be chosen to suit.

Traditionally LEEA’s lowest cost, most flexible and convenient training option, e-learning can now step up to become an essential tool to help the global lifting industry mitigate coronavirus disruption to the continuing journey to raise standards.
