Frequently Asking Questions

Have a question?

Frequently Asked Questions:
Are the two day courses being held in the same weekend?

The course dates have been segregated approx. 1-month apart to allow a sufficient amount of time for self-study. Every course requires a minimum amount of self-study hours so as to complete the required curriculum.

If you have signed up for a online course, the course may be segregated into two consecutive days across one or two weekends, depending on the course self study requirements between the two days. Upon your completion you will be asked to attend a standard course date at a different date if you wish to receive a Certificate.
