How many students are there in a classroom?

It depends on how many would enroll per intake. Even if the number of students are just 1, we still continue with the training as planned. The maximum number of students we will have in a classroom is 10.

Can I request a date that is convenient for me?

Absolutely! We will arrange the training that is convenient for you. The training date is completely customizable.

Can I change the course content?

Yes, if the contents of the course needs to be changed, please let us know. We will communicate with you and get a course outline that works for you finalized.

Does it matter which industry I work at?

It really doesn’t. We take cases and discuss them to cover your industry. If you need the course to be customized and tailored to your industry, we can also do that. You’d have to let us know in advance by filling out the form below.
