Course Content

Knowledge and skills are developed through a variety of training techniques specifically designed for adult learners, including:

  • In-class facilitator-led presentations delivered by an engaging and experienced facilitator
  • Multimedia content including videos, games and psychological challenges sprinkled throughout lectures to build engagement and interest
