Want to do this when the kids have gone to sleep? That’s fine. Or prefer to do it all in one weekend, that’s fine too. As soon as you’ve started your course you will have access to your first lesson. Each lesson has one video and an optional assignment. As soon as you’ve submitted your first assignment that unlocks the next video. But don’t worry if life gets in the way, and you don’t get a chance to finish your assignment, we’ll always release your next video after a week so you can still get access to the expert advice. Each video of around 30 minutes long and assignments tend to take about 1-2 hours
