Introduction

yuI am Michael Verinder, the managing director of Distance Learning Courses Limited and I have been developing and delivering distance learning courses for over 20 years. Distance Learning Courses Limited is a family based business and my involvement in this area started after my Dad developed our first Webmaster Course back in 1993 I soon ended up doing the course myself and this eventually led to me tutoring the course.

Since then we have gone from strength to strength and we continue to develop innovative course materials and the Distance Learning Centre website was created as a platform to offer a wide range of distance learning courses. The Web Design courses remain a popular course choice but equally we offer a range of courses that can lead directly to specific job roles such as teaching assistant and child care courses that lead to full QCF qualifications or GCSE, IGCSE and A Level Courses which are still massively important for many job roles and further education applications.

  • The Armed Forces
  • Job Centre Plus
