Will all of the learning be conducted online? Do I have to attend any classes physically?
That depends on the course, however, the great part about our courses is- the majority of the courses offered are conducted one hundred percent online. This means that unless you have a clinical practicum, a lab or a workshop to complete, you will never have to step foot outside of your home to attend a lecture, class or session. Everything will be delivered to you on this platform via online so you can complete it at your own pace, at your own convenience through your laptop, PC, or smartphone.
