When do the live classes take place?
The live classes usually take place at 17.00 hrs CET (Amsterdam) on a mutually convenient day for all the course members. You’ll get the most out of the classes by attending live (and learning collaboratively with the other course members) but if you miss them, you can catch up with the recording too. The recording is available within 24 hours of the live class.
Is the course ‘live’?
There is a live class scheduled for 90 mins per week for all 8 modules of the course. If you are unable to attend live, then you can watch the recording (although we do recommend you attend live to get the most benefit from asking questions).

They are usually 20-30 minutes in length. You receive one video lesson per week.
