Course

How are the courses structured?
Every module, we will provide you with a learning module containing theory and practice material.
 
You will find the material in your online studio.
 
• You will study on the basis of the course material and complete the respective tasks.
 
• Once you have completed an exercise or a task, you will send it to your lecturer for review. Your lecturer will evaluate your exercises and tasks and send you comprehensive feedback.
 
• If you have questions on the course structure, the course content or the topic covered, feel free to contact your coach.
 
• Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive the OfG certificate.
Is it possible to extend the duration of a course?
The training duration depends on your personal learning progress. We generally recommend one module per month.

You can extend the duration of any course with a duration of 6 months or more by 50% of the original duration for free.

Is it possible to shorten the duration of a course?
Yes! You can also complete your OfG course faster than normal. To do this, you can have the individual course modules enabled separately, so you can proceed at your own pace. Please note that when a course module is enabled you also receive the corresponding invoice. So there is no change in the overall cost of the course.
How much time will I spend on one course?
Depending on your level of knowledge, we recommend you allow 5-10 hours per week for the course.
Learning material
All of our course material is available online. All files you need to fulfill the tasks are available for download.
