*Frequent questions:What happens if I can’t see the classes live one day?No problem. All classes are live but will also be recorded and posted on our platform. So you can see them whenever you want throughout the duration of the course. This means that if you cannot attend your class live at the stipulated time, you will be able to see them on the platform until the course ends. These video-classes posted on the platform can be viewed unlimitedly during the duration of the course but cannot be copied or downloaded. Once the course is finished, they will be on the platform for 20 more days. In this way you can review content with ease.When can I see the classes I did not attend live?• 24-hour access to the virtual platform where you can consult all the information or documentation of the course, access all the classes that have already been taught or the proposed exercises. When, where and at the rate you want.
