  • Hands-on examples that cover the concepts introduced are provided to allow delegates to work through them offline at their own pace.
  • For most sessions a short quiz is set to test delegates’ understanding of the topic(s) covered.
  • Click the course name for more details on each course.
  • Sessions are recorded and links to recordings will be provided to delegates to allow viewing if a session is missed.
