The M_o_R Foundation and Practitioner course includes a variety of hands on exercises to ensure that the theory is embedded and delegates feel confident in the practical application of M_o_R. Additional evening work will be required in the form of consolidation reading and mock examination questions. The evening work is an integral part of the course and delegates should expect to spend approximately two hours on the activities.
The course will cover the following syllabus areas:
