This is an asynchronous course. That means there are no live events scheduled at specific times. You can log in to the course and complete activities throughout the week at your own pace, at the times and on the days that are most convenient for you. Despite its asynchronous nature, there are still structures in place for the duration of the course.

Details and application.
