Innovative Ellis CPD sure to educate

  • 19 Sep 2018

An innovative CPD course developed by the world’s leading cable cleat manufacturer, Ellis has educated approximately 2000 engineering professionals worldwide on the importance of cable cleats and correct specification.

Cable cleats: a device for short circuit protection is a UK accredited, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course that has been adapted for international use.

It is offered both person-to-person and online as an e-CPD by Ellis, via its e-learning portal; www.elearning.ellispatents.co.uk

To date, Ellis has provided CPD certification to recipients across the width and breadth of the UK, as well as from Australia to Canada in its export markets.

Phil Goddard, Ellis’ specification manager (pictured), commented: “As with our cable cleats, our CPD programme has a global reputation.

“The numbers who are receiving certification are growing rapidly, while at the same time we’re seeing a surge in the number of enquiries, both on and offline, for the course.

“Our next step, so as to avoid any major difference between what we can deliver overseas and in the UK, is to adapt, and gain accreditation for a video conference version of the CPD; meaning we can deliver the personal touch wherever in the world the engineer is based.”

Both Ellis’ traditional and e-CPDs are designed to provide technical insight and guidance in terms of the use of cable cleats.

Both are accredited through the UK CPD organisation and are available for free
