Course Structure

The course consists of 2 training sessions a week apart.

The first session of 2 hours will be a demonstration of what you can do and how to do it. At the end of the first session the delegates will be emailed some exercises for them to work through, practicing their knowledge and building up their skills before the second session a week later.

The second session of 1½ hours will review how the delegates got on with the exercises with the opportunity to discuss any questions they have.

Delegates will need access to the latest version of the software during the 1st session. You will be asked to complete a case study during this session. The trainer will explain how to do this without leaving the Zoom training.
