Digitizing Theory

Each subject offered has been broken down into modules building on one another. The class structure provides a step by step structure leading the student through a well thought out learning path. Classes are approximately one hour in length (unless otherwise specified) per session. The topic is spread over a period of time allowing the student to learn at a relaxed pace compared to a traditional classroom environment.

The number of students permitted per class varies depending on the complexity of the subject. Enrollment is based on a first come first serve basis, so don't delay in submitting your registration. The cost of each class also varies by the complexity of the class subject and whether there is a class assignment.

Completing each module is highly recommended, but not a requirement. You may pick and choose from the class objectives determining if a particular module would benefit you. Missing a week or two of class will not impact your learning process too much.

Take a look below at the topics offered. We're sure you will find one that is of interest to you.
