Please note that scheduling online training is very different from face-to-face. This virtual course will be offered in seven segments with multiple sessions over the week (both in morning and afternoon). Just like the face-to-face training, we expect all participants to attend all sessions listed in the event.
Participants will be given a small group to work in and given assignments that they need to complete throughout the week together.
