Each module comprises of one self-directed e-Learning, one Zoom session and a follow-up Zoom call, which is scheduled for the following week after each initial session. Participants will be able to seek additional feedback after applying their new M.I. skills in direct practice. To acquire a certificate for this training, participants are required to attend both Zoom sessions. The best learning outcomes will be achieved through completing these sessions in order.
