    8 Day Accelerated Pace

    This course covers the same material as the 6 week course. However, it is paced much faster with the expectation that the course is completed in 8 to 10 days. This amounts to an average of 2 hours of work each day for approximatly 16 hours to complete. Starting April 6, we will start a new session every two weeks. Below are the session start dates
