Layout of training programme:

Each training consist of one or more modules. These will be combined basis legal and customer requirements (tailormade). As a result: a course can take somewhere between 4 hours and 4 full days. Common is 1-2 days. See also (below) example-list of modules.


When outside the Netherlands: can be discussed but in principle to be organised by the customer.


When outside the Netherlands: travel cost might become an issue. This may require early confirmation and/or large groups to be trained.
