Course Format

The lecture-based learning for this course will be done online prior to the course date(s). You will receive access to the recorded lectures and will be expected to review all sessions prior to arriving for in-person learning. The in-person session will focus on hands-on, interactive training with expert faculty, who will share their skills and answer questions.

When registering for the course, you will be asked to choose date(s) for the in-person session. Multiple in-person sessions are offered to accommodate the most learners while following COVID-19 safety protocol. The instructions for all in-person sessions will be the same, so you will only attend one in-person session. No more than 18 learners will be allowed per session, so register early for best chances of reserving your preferred dates.
