Prior to accessing the BDA eLearning site, you will need to register your details via the BDA’s main online booking system. This process is required so that your account and any associated future courses / modules etc can be registered accordingly.

  • Existing eLearning accounts: where a candidates email address matches an email address already in stored on the BDA eLearning platform, we will associate any newly booked / registered course details with the account sharing the same email address. If you need us to merge any duplicate eLearning accounts, once access has been made, this may result in the loss of any data / tasks already completed.
  • New eLearning accounts: if the candidates email address does not match an existing eLearning accounts email address, (and or differs from any eLearning account email address which may have been set up historically), a new eLearning account will be created. using the email address provided by at the time of booking.
