Our virtual program allows you to watch at your own pace, moving seamlessly between learning and work, and is ideal for implementing and exploring new schemes and concepts on your own timeline.

You will also be part of an event community on CONNECT, adding a key networking component to our virtual environment. This community provides a space for participants to ask faculty questions and discuss concepts and schemes explored during the various sessions.

What to Expect

Pre-recorded sessions will be available on demand for two weeks between July 13 – 24 to registered attendees. You can watch at your own pace, engaging with as few or as many sessions during each sitting. To earn credit for attending, every required session must be watched and each session quiz, which ensures content mastery, must be completed. These sessions were not designed to be shared or streamed with others. Each participant should be registered to attend.
