BMF Building Blocks e-Learning

Heating and Hot Water Comfort

This series of 6 modules covers heating and hot water comfort in domestic properties. Covering the main types of central heating systems, system controls, hot water storage and water treatment, you will have a solid base understanding of the subject. Each module includes a Knowledge Check to test understanding, with a final assessment which is scored.

Course Outline

The programme includes a variety of learning resources: online learning modules, required reading and a number of learning activities and tasks. The online modules and the final assessment are marked online and if you achieve the required mastery score you will have passed the course and you will be able to download and print off your certificate.

You will benefit most if you work through the modules one at a time, complete the e-learning modules, read the handouts, complete the learning activities and finally discuss the practical elements with your line manager or more experienced colleagues.

Timber as a Building Material

This series of 6 modules covers the use of timber in residential construction. Covering timber frame and other methods of timber construction, roofing, joinery and timber components, you will have a solid base understanding of the subject. Each module includes a Knowledge Check to test understanding.

This current project is undoubtedly the most ambitious and far reaching to date. In association with the BMF we have just released the first e-learning Block in a programme which will eventually include over 100 e-learning modules providing over in excess of 150 hours of industry specific training.

The Building Blocks programme is a direct replacement of the now retired MOL distance workbooks which have educated the Builders Merchant industry for many years. Through collaboration with industry experts, every topic is covered in one block or another to form a truly all-encompassing and long-term training programme that can be revisited again and again. This unique approach will provide the BMF and UK construction suppliers access to the very best digital generic unbiased industry knowledge ever.

If your business or industry is looking for a long-term partner through which to create and host a similar online academy, then get in touch.
