As you’ve noticed, there are a whole bunch of online lessons for you to complete BEFORE you get to the live workshop and assessment days.

This is a self paced course so you can learn around your current commitments and lifestyle. Please however, do the work. Please don’t attempt to book a live workshop without completing all lessons on this system beforehand. There is vital information about how to progress through the course and not miss anything that you’ll need on the live days. We hope to maximise practice time on the live days rather than talk through the theory that you learn at home.
