Information on the organization of this course

Corona safe. Course is run respecting the protection measures.

This is possible without extra charge thanks to a flexible linear adjustment of the lesson length according to the principle: the fewer the number of participants, the more intensive the learning; the more participants, the longer the lesson. The lesson duration is adjusted proportionally to the number of participants and is complemented through self-study as follows:
5–7 participants: 180 mins. lesson time
4 participants: 135 mins. + self-study
3 participants: 120 mins. + self-study
2 participants: 90 mins. + self-study
1 participant: 60 mins. + self-study

The achievable learning goal is rated equally for all these options provided the self-study requirements are fulfilled.
