FAQ

  • Will I get a certificate?

    Yes. Certificates are auto-generated when you achieve 100% completion.

  • What if I don't get all the content finished in one week?

    That's ok. We give you one additional 'catch up' week to watch anything you have missed.

  • What's the time commitment? I'm pretty busy...

    It's manageable. You'll need about 1.5 hours per day for the recorded and written content. Then you'll have the opportunity to join live Q&A's once a day for half an hour. These are optional. If you miss a day, it's ok, once content has been published on each day it will stay live for the rest of the conference week plus an additional 'catch up week' afterwards.
