Welcome to this course!

For a very detailed course description please email Imelda on [email protected]

This course (taught from London UK) is structured in a Canada/US-friendly way.

There are 2-3 sessions a day (with some tasks set for time spent off-line)

The basic idea is that students in the Americas join from 3 PM British Summer Time (based on local time that will be early to mid morning!) They will watch the recording for the morning session in their evening (while Europe sleeps) and bring any questions to next live session.

There are 12 Instruction Webinars in All
