This is a very full two days - prior to each Live interactive Session you will also be required to complete individual learning (prior to Live session 1 - which can be done a few days before, in-between session 1 and 2, after session 2 in readiness for session 3 and in-between session 3 and 4). Please ensure you allow time for the individual learning prior to each Live Session and some down time for self care too. It is suggested to allocate around 1 to 1.5 hours for each individual learning session.
ALL individual learning and live interactive sessions must be fully completed in order to gain Certification.
