Online Courses

eCollege is a leading learning platform that delivers online training courses. eCollege courses are temporarily being made available free of charge as an additional support to those impacted by Covid-19 containment measures. Our courses may benefit those already doing a FET course who would like to augment their learning, those who have recently become unemployed or had their hours reduced, and those wishing to upskill and reskill. Our courses are designed to give a flexible response to the specific skills needs of individuals who require training interventions with certification to assist them to re-enter or upskill in the labour market.  

The eTutor team are all trainers specialised in their own subject fields such as IT, Office, Project Management and Digital Marketing.  In addition, LOETB will assign each learner an eTutor who will assist and support you through your online course.
