What is involved?
For this certified course IRCA lay down strict requirements in terms of the hours of learning (40+), continuous assessment and the supervision of the exam. This means that you will need to undertake just over 3 hours of online learning prior to the 5 day event and that the event itself will be very intensive and includes evening work – see Timetable details above. It is very important that during the 5-day event you focus totally on the course and that distractions are minimal.
We will send you detailed joining instructions once you have booked your place and in sufficient time for you to undertake the pre-course work..
Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and be seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.
