How does it work?

Enroll for a course and once it begins, we’ll send you weekly reminders to start your new chapter.

You can stick to the weekly schedule, or take things at your own pace – you retain access to the course materials for life, and you can login to revisit or revise the content as many times as you like.

Do I get any support?

Yes, you’ll have a course mentor who you can email at any time during the course. We also invite all our students to join our Facebook Study Group, where you can ask our team a question, chat with your fellow students, or get help from previous graduates.
