Learn through videos, text, and photos

The course is delivered through a mixture of videos, text, photos, and PDF info-graphics. There are also quizzes at the end of each module so you can test your knowledge.

"Your use of the video clips all the way through, and your warm, enthusiastic welcome at the start, means you don't feel alone doing it - you feel accompanied. Also the overall framework of the course makes it a lot more accessible to work through than reading a book about the subject"
