*Note: All courses are very interactive, which means that practising is a large part of the learning process. Once a main topic has been explained by the teacher, it is immediately followed by a session of practise. Once a section is assimilated by participants, the teacher will move to the next topic. Therefore, the above agenda does not include the practise duration which is spread out during the day session.
