Structure and Focus of Certificate Program 3
Certificate 3 includes fewer synchronous hours than the previous Certificates. There are learning blocks, each comprising a 2-hour facilitated virtual workshop plus any hours that you invest naturally in your self-guided equity project work.
Each learning block is designed around a clear set of objectives that describe what you will have done to demonstrate your progress as they move through Certificate 3.
