Course Constitution
This course is constituted as follows

  • Theoretical: 30%
  • Practical - Demo: 20%
  • Practical - Tasks, Activities or Labs: 50%

Percentages are approximate. Whilst we endeavour to include a blend of theory, demo and activities in all of our courses we recognise that some delegates prefer a particular style of course (I.e. wholly or predominantly lab based workshops or immersion experiences) and would ask them to consider their preferred learning style before registration. We would also ask delegates to check the site regularly for new courses as we expand to offer different blends of theory/practice
