Our three-day training is conducted over 24 hours.

Trainees will undergo a written examination and continuous assessment. Participation in all workshops is mandatory. Certification will be awarded to trainees that successfully complete the workshops and score at least 70% in the final written examination. Certificates are distributed within 65 days.

If you fail the assessment, you will need to redo the training course through a new subscription. If you pass the continuous assessment but do not achieve 70% or more in the written exam, then you can re-sit the written exam within twelve months. Please note, in this circumstance, you will only receive a certificate of participation until you successfully re-sit and pass the written exam.
