Please note that this course is a combination of Instructor-Led and Self-Paced Study - 5 days in the classroom and approx. 3 days of self study. The self-study content will be provided as part of the digital courseware that you receive at the beginning of the course and should be part of your preparation for the exam. Additional lab access will be provided at the end of the class, this will be valid for 60 hours or 90 days whichever is the shorter. It will be possible to complete all but 7 of the labs after the class.

Virtual and Classroom learning - V&C Select™

V&C Select™ is a simple concept and a flexible approach to delivery. You can 'select' a course from our public schedule and attend in person or as a virtual delegate. Virtual delegates do not travel to this course, we will send you all the information you need before the start of the course and you can test the logins.
