Learning & development at your pace
The certification program is designed to follow your learning and development – at your pace.
As such, you can zip through the entire program in 3-6 hours – or you can spend several months to learn, try things in real-life, deep dive into the advanced content and run live sessions as you learn.
The time commitment at your end can be as little as a few hours, completed in one day. Or, it can be a step-by-step, module-by-module learning journey where you go back and forth as a natural part of your training. This way, you can work through the online certification program over a period of several months as you slowly build your own expertise and mastery.
