Please note, individual training does not include additional live support or training in a virtual environment. You can, however, contact us with your questions.

Group workshop

Taking place over a three-week period, the group workshop combines self-paced modular learning with an opportunity to practically apply MANRS principles in a virtual environment. Participants are expected to dedicate around an hour each weekday to the workshop.

At the end of each week, we’ll have a video call where you’ll be able to ask any questions and meet other participants. You’ll also be part of a Telegram or WhatsApp group where you can ask workshop-related questions at any time.
