Invest your time now in online Renewable Energy training and gain an advantage among other professionals when pursuing your career goals.
Tips for Studying from Home
Make a schedule for yourself. With all the course materials available to you, it can be tempting to try and plough through all of it as quickly as you can, but research shows that the best way to accumulate knowledge is to take pauses in between so that the brain can relax and process information. Dividing your work into smaller chunks will also allow you to follow your own progress and feel the rewards of your achievements every time you complete a module.
If you are working full-time from home, add in an hour for professional development a few times a week during working hours, or watch the expert-led lectures on your lunch break. If work is slow at the moment, take this opportunity to study a course intensively, and achieve your internationally recognised Galileo Master Certificate (GMC) in a week’s time, or enrol onto an Expert pathway or the full Accredited Master in Renewable Energy Award programme, to maximise your knowledge.
For a more interactive online study experience, sign up for an intensive live virtual classroom course, where you can network with other participants around the globe, while attending the expert-led classes from home. If you miss talking to your colleagues, or if your usual office conversation can use a bit of added inspiration, why not enrol on a course together, and discuss what you have learned during your morning meetings?
Remember to plan breaks in between study sessions. Regardless of whether you are studying full days or a couple of hours at a time, it is recommended that you take a 5 – 15-minute break for every hour of studying. Take a short walk around the house or do a quick stretch. Even just changing your position will ease any potential tension and help keep your concentration up. Make sure that you stay hydrated – keep a glass of water next to you at all times.
