You can watch a video preview below, to get an idea of the course’s presentation layout:

  • An internet connection, as this is an online course and all videos will be streamed.
  • Even though the course is designed in a way that makes it accessible to all experience and knowledge levels, a very basic understanding of the syllabus would be beneficial but not necessary.
