This discount is applied to your total order, not to the number of modules you order for each learner. You can order for multiple learners in one order.

Guidance Notes: please read before placing your order

  1. You should complete one Manager Payment and Order Form per order, but you’ll need to complete a separate Learner Application Form for each person you are ordering modules for. For example, if you are ordering modules for three people, you will need to complete three Learner Application Forms.
  2. Don’t forget to add up the total number of Learner Application Forms you are submitting AND the total number of modules ordered and include this in the boxes provided at the foot of the Manager Payment and Order Form.
  3. On the Learner Form you will need to tell us in which order the Modules will be studied. The next book in the sequence will only be issued once the learner has completed the assessment for the previous module.
  4. You should also complete the total price of the modules orders. The price is clearly shown on the Manager Form:
    a. 1 x module = £150
    b. 2 – 4 modules = £145
    c. 5 modules or more £130 per module
  5. There is no need to add VAT to the prices of the modules.
  6. You have three payment options which you can read about here.

Dispatching the Modules

Once we’ve received your forms (to place your order simply email them via this link), and you have pre-paid if you don’t have an IET credit account, the first Module textbook will be sent out to you within 3 – 5 working days by FedEx.

Additional learning support or extra time

If the Learner needs additional study support please let us know. This could also include additional time to work through the Module and End of Module Assessment (EMA). The standard timescale is 10 weeks from the start of study to completion and return of the EMA. To discuss this support please email the IET here.

Look out for important module news straight to your inbox

After you’ve placed your order, keep an eye on your inbox for important messages from

  1. Welcome email: there’ll be one for the manager and another for learners
  2. The half way point: at week 4 the learner will receive an email, which will be copied into the manger
  3. Almost there: at week 8, we;ll be in touch to remind you that there’s only 2 weeks to go to complete your End of Module Assessment (EMA)
  4. The results are in: once your EMA has been marked, we’ll send you the results by email.

Transfer window

If the Learner in your team leaves your business after you have placed the order, you can transfer the Module to another member of your team as long as the End of Module Assessment has not been requested. To request the transfer, please email the IET here.

Requesting the End of Module Assessment (EMA)

Managers: you must request the EMA by email, it is not sent out automatically.

When your learner is ready to take their EMA, usually around the 8 week point, email with the learner’s name and the module they are studying. The EMA, which is digitally fillable, will be emailed to you as the manager, for you to send on to your learner.

There are four important points that you need to know about the EMA:

  1. It does not have to be completed in one go, but can be broken down into manageable blocks.
  2. It is an open book assessment. That means learners can refer to their textbooks (and other texts) during the EMA.
  3. It should be completed electronically. Unlike the hard copy textbook, the EMA is emailed to the manager to forward on to the learner.  which is sent to the learner by email, filled in online by the learner and then e-mailed back to the IET for marking along with any additional documents or information that the learner wants to add to their answers.
  4. If the EMA is not returned within the 10 weeks, and no extension has been requested, it will be graded ‘Fail due to non return’.

At no point should the learner send back their textbook, it’s theirs to keep.

The EMA comprises:

  • 10 multiple choice questions
  • 5 short answer questions
  • 2 detailed research essays

The results are assessed by our partners, the IET. The results are sent by email to the learner, and copied to the manager from Those who are successful will be awarded:

  • Pass (60% – 70%)
  • Credit (70% – 79%) or
  • Distinction (80% – 100%)

A City & Guilds certificate will be sent out for each successful module. Those who study multiple modules will receive an additional commendation from the EDA:

  • 5 modules – EDA Certificate
  • 10 modules – EDA Diploma
