HOW WILL MY COURSE BE CONDUCTED ?

I validate my registration with the support of the WiSP team.

I receive my access codes to connect to the e-learning platform.

The modules are accessible on the first day of the course, as indicated in my registration. I have unlimited access to the e-learning platform and can manage my progress at my own pace over the 9-week course duration (recommended study time: 10 hours/week).

This qualification is delivered as a group training session. As such, an educator monitors my progress and facilitates the group session. I ask all my questions in the forum to fully understand all the concepts covered in the modules.
