Engineering courses online with National College of Technology

National College of Technology (NCT) provides a range of distance learning engineering training courses to support company staff and individuals in their ongoing technical development. These courses are part of the Certificate in Engineering Maintenance and are accredited and certificated by EMTA Awards Limited (EAL).

Distance Learning with NCT

With NCT you can learn while you earn. And with the better job prospects and salary that you can expect with distance learning qualifications, it’s also a case of ‘learn to earn’. Here’s an overview of some of the other benefits of taking courses by distance learning:

  • You can study in your own time and at your own pace
  • There are many distance learning courses to choose from
  • No entry qualifications or previous experience is required for most courses
  • Distance learning is an affordable way to learn
  • You’ll receive help and guidance from a personal tutor

NCT was founded 26 years ago to produce, market and support flexible and distance learning courses in electronics to cover the requirements for Continuous Professional Development (CPD). Further programmes were added to its portfolio and in 2003 it became part of the OakCAD Training Group with OakCAD Training providing a comprehensive range of tutor delivered training courses.

These courses can be tailored to your specific requirement and delivered on your site. All of our training courses, whether distance learning or delivered or a mix of both, are particularly relevant for maintenance engineers, with some aspects suitable for technical machine operators. They can also provide an overview for engineering managers.

The courses are particularly suitable for those engineers who have a specific qualification or knowledge or have experience gained in the workplace and are seeking other skills as part of a cross-skilling or enhancement programme. We also provide a training consultancy and support service and would be pleased to talk to you regarding your specific areas of training need. We are confident that we can present a cost-effective solution to the training needs of YOUR Company.

NCT /OakCAD offers a range of CMI management Award, Certificate and Diploma courses at Levels 3-7 and recently have developed a Diploma in Energy Management and an associated short programme of energy management for businesses. These courses are by distance learning but tutor delivered versions for companies wishing to train groups are also possible.


The experienced staff of NCT are able to provide advice and consultancy to a wide range of individuals and organisations who are seeking flexible solutions to their training needs.
We can provide a complete consultancy, guidance, training and support service for a range of engineering and management activities. This includes training needs analysis, the development of training plans, accreditation of prior learning (APL), NVQ advice & support, workplace assessment and internal verification.
We specialise in courses customised to meet your company’s specific requirements.
Our training consultants are well qualified with considerable experience in education and training.
Although we specialise in Engineering, CAD and management training, we are also able to support distance learning courses in other topic areas. Click the link below to learn more about our consultancy services.
