This course contains about ten hours of material, so you could theoretically complete it in one day. But please don’t complete it in one day!  I ask that you take at least a week to complete the course.  Take some bite-sized pieces of material – one to two hours at most – and let it sink in overnight before continuing.  This will be the best way to retain the information.

Visit the online course catalog to browse our offerings.  You can search by level (beginner, intermediate and advanced) to ensure you find a course that reflects your interests.

It is required that you take the courses in order from beginner to intermediate to advanced.  For example, you will not be able to register for the intermediate course until the prerequisite of the beginner course has been completed.   This will ensure you get a solid grounding before exploring more advanced concepts.
