The 2020 program has been enhanced for distance learning. In addition to being live streamed, all sessions will be recorded and made available to participants for online viewing for 30 days after the end of the course. This video archive will ensure that participants who live in different time zones or who have scheduling conflicts do not miss out on any sessions that are important to them. In addition, participants can review sessions that they watched during live streaming to reinforce key learning points.
