Is it difficult for you to travel to our Training Centres?

Why not study Pitman Training Courses from your home?


If you can’t get to one of our Training centres in the City of London or Oxford Circus, an exciting alternative could be to study from your home.

You’ll enjoy even more flexibility whilst studying for your Pitman Training Certificate with this online training methodology, and will still benefit from the support of our expert team of trainers.


Is Distance Learning for you?

At Pitman Training we have always been very proud of the flexibility of our training and now with our distance learning option, you’ll have the luxury of being able to learn not only when you want but also where you want!.

  • All files and software are internet based and accessed online allowing you to study from anywhere that has an internet connection.  If you would like to study a Microsoft PowerPoint course but don’t have the software on your PC, you don't need to worry as you'll be accessing the Microsoft software FREE through the online portal.

  • Get regular support from our expert trainers who are only an email or phone call away.

  • Reduce your travel costs – you’ll only need to visit us for an induction or to take an exam.

How it works

Online Distance learning simply means that rather than doing your course in our Pitman Training Centre, you log on from home or work. It’s just like learning in a centre - except you’re not physically there! You work your way through the distance learning course as you would in our training centre, but at a time and place to suit you.

Unlike many other training providers, there is no need to purchase additional software materials or programmes to study at home or from work. Our friendly course advisors will supply you with a tailored distance learning platform, with everything you need to get started. You still get all the learning materials to help you along the way when carrying out distance learning and you’ll have regular contact with our team who will make sure you’re on track.

You’ll just need to need to pop into our Pitman Training centre to take the exam but we’ll make this as convenient as possible.


What courses can I study away from the training centre?

Many of our popular diploma programmes are available via distance learning, including the Executive PA Diploma and the Foundation in Bookkeeping Diploma.
