Each course consists of two modules, run one week apart.

Each module includes a one-hour webinar led by one of our experienced and friendly tutors.

Our webinars are run using either Zoom or Microsoft Teams – if you haven’t used Zoom or Teams before, we have some short and snappy video tutorials to guide you through.

We keep our classes small and personal with a maximum of 6 attendees.

You will also be able to access our “reminder videos” and download a comprehensive course manual covering all the relevant theory – and more!

Two days after your webinar, there will be an (optional) 30-minute online session with your tutor to go through the exercises and answer any queries.
