ONLINE Training - Adaptation to the Covid-19 situation

As travelling may be restricted during the course period and your health is of highest priority to us, this training will be held as an online training with a virtual classroom. Following tutorials on a monitor for a long time is very exhaustive. We therefore reduce the daily amount of hours to 4 including short breaks.
