Here we respond to your FAQs about the EDA Product Knowledge Programme.
If you can’t find the answer to your query here, please contact Rose, the EDA’s Training and Education Programme Coordinator:
It is up to you which combination of training modules you choose for your team.
The Programme is flexible so you can tailor the training to suit the individual. If, however, they have no experience in the electro-technical sector, Introduction to the Principles of Electricity could be a good place to start as it underpins the training in the other training modules.
Once you have completed your forms and attached any Purchase Order (check out how to pay via this link), you can send them to this email address.
For each order you’ll need one Manager Form and a Learner Form for each person you want to order modules for. You can include multiple Learner Forms within one order.
Once your order is received and paid for, using one of the three payment options, your order is sent out from our partners, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (the IET) within three to five working days, in the order in which you requested them. The package will need to be signed for.
Only a Manager can request an EMA. Email the IET via this link, giving the name of the learner and the name of the module being studied.
The EMA is emailed to the Manager as an interactive PDF which needs to be completed electronically. You will need the most up-to-date version of Adobe Reader – it is free. You’ll find hints and tips to help you succeed in your EMA here, including a sample EMA and sample answers.
That’s fine. Just attach them to the email when your Manager returns the EMA to the IET for marking.
Yes, a Manager can request an EMA at any point during the 10 week process as long as it is submitted it before the final deadline.
Unfortunately, we are unable to delay Textbooks being sent out as they are automatically triggered once the previous EMA is received. If you know you are going to be away, or the branch will be busy, please get in touch with the IET via email to request an extension.
No, only modules where the EMA has not been requested can be transferred. If you wish the new learner to complete this module you will need to place a new order.
It’s yours to keep and to refer back to. Please do not send it back to the EDA or the IET.
Unfortunately, your learner has failed because they did not complete and return their End of Module Assessment (EMA) within the 10 week deadline.
If that learner has left your team you can transfer any subsequent modules you have ordered to a new member of your team. You have 4 weeks from receipt of email to get back in touch with the IET before the modules will no longer be transferable. Contact the IET by email regarding the transfer.
It can take up to five weeks for you to receive your results. In some cases a further week will be taken for moderation.
