Basics (1 hour 30 minutes)

A standalone module, this is the shortest and most basic of the three Induction to Steel Courses. It provides a very general overview of the steel supply chain.

Fundamentals (3 hours 52 minutes)

This course covers everything in the module above in more detail, plus more. It is also a pre-requisite to the Extended course.

Fundamentals Extended (6 hours 14 minutes)

Offered together with the Fundamentals course as a package, this is the most in-depth and technical of all three Induction to Steel courses.

Extended Version only *

*This course is not visible and will only become visible after you have completed the Fundamentals Course. The Fundamentals Course completion is a pre-requisite to accessing this course.

This is designed for learners who initially did the Fundamentals, but then at a latter stage, realised they needed the whole suite of modules. Completing the Fundamentals course and this Extended course is equivalent to the Fundamentals Extended package.
