Due to Covid-19, we have arranged for the upcoming sessions to be held online to ensure the welfare of both trainer and participants. This has been done in the past and has worked very well. We have ensured that the quality of the course delivery remains uncompromising by adapting the course material for online delivery, setting up a reliable online platform, and limiting the number of participants.

This course is spread over 5 weeks part time. There is some flexibility in scheduling subject to group consensus.
