Our courses are taught by a team of sensory professionals from industry and academia. Participants are instructed on theoretical aspects of the course material in a classroom style setting, allowing ample time for the information provided to be absorbed and any questions to be asked. Participants are given hands on experience and are shown best practice for all practical aspects of the course. Relevant examples from participants sample categories are used throughout, where applicable.
