No, our course does not include daily live classes. Instead, you will have the opportunity to attend 7-8 live lectures, each lasting approximately 90 minutes. The schedule for these live sessions is released at the beginning of the course.

We understand that our learners may be students or working professionals, so we strive to accommodate everyone's schedules. Most of our live sessions are held on weekends or in the late evenings, allowing all participants to attend without compromising their regular classes or work commitments.

We highly recommend attending the live classes after thorough preparation to maximize your learning experience. Just as the true excitement of a live match or performance lies in witnessing it in real-time, the real value of our live classes comes from actively participating and engaging with the content and instructors.

During the live sessions, a wealth of new and practical information is covered, and you'll have the opportunity to ask questions and receive immediate feedback.

However, we understand that sometimes life gets in the way, and you may miss a live class. In such cases, you can access the recordings of the live sessions through your personalized Learning Management System (LMS) dashboard.

The LMS dashboard provides 24/7 access to all course materials, including the live session recordings, ensuring that you can catch up on any missed content at your convenience.

To successfully complete the course, we recommend dedicating approximately 3-5 hours per week to your learning journey. The total course duration is 15 hours.
