Your course Tutors
Tony is one of ELN's most popular tutors for AET, CET and sometimes the Assessor courses too. He has been involved in training since the mid 1990’s and has experience in both the private and public sector. He has taught a variety of subjects including Engineering, Explosives, Advanced Driving & Riding and Professional Development. During his time in industry Tony worked with a number of universities where he sat on a number of boards advising on course development, gave lectures and sponsored projects (many of which turned into commercial enterprises). When Tony is not in the classroom (or online!) he enjoys the outdoor life and is happiest when riding his Ducati.

There is no difference between the qualification content, delivery or assessment. Both Pearson Edexcel and NOCN operate under Ofqual and offer the same qualification so this is purely a matter of which brand you prefer. Pearson are more widely-recognised but NOCN process the certificates much quicker.
For the AET, CET or DET you can focus on teaching the older 16+ students. The assessor course is for those who assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding in a classroom or work environment so may not be fully relevant.

AET Virtual course is a 2 day live, virtual course with real-time tutor and colleague interaction. Attendance is time-bound and compulsory like any regular classroom based course.
The online self-paced AET is a 6 month course where you get access to a personal tutor if you require help but is mostly self-paced independent learning at your convenience.
