Vocational education Infrastructure Technology
The vocational education in Infrastructure Technology is offered at various Regional Education and Training Centres (ROC) throughout the Netherlands. The main challenge here is to train future technicians in the exact same way. Therefore, in order to bring uniformity in the education, the BLEI Foundation (Organization for teaching recourses and examinations in Infrastructure Technology) was founded.
TinQwise was asked to develop the 'BLEI Academy', combining existing training courses to one online program in an educationally responsible manner. The success of the BLEI Academy means that hundreds of vocational students now receive an uniform education to become responsible professionals in the field of Infrastructure Technology.
The BLEI Academy consists of 23 learning modules. Together they form the complete course for three disciplines: Low voltage, Medium voltage, and Gas/water/heating. The course includes both general and discipline-specific learning bites.
This bite sized learning helps to deliver training that is appealing, efficient and highly effective. As a result the BLEI Academy ensures that future infrastructure technicians are equally trained and speak the same language.
Turning the fragmented approach to training into one recognized educational program (BLEI Academy), also results in shared visions on how work is to be carried out. This has a huge advantage when it comes to working on big projects involving technicians throughout the country.
The combination of online learning and classroom training, makes BLEI Academy a full Vocational Education acknowledged by the industry. The BLEI Academy is considered to be an effective blended learning experience, offering matching online and in-person learning. Inside and outside the classroom.
