The C-CAT course consists of pre-recorded videos and PowerPoints. The individual will have the opportunity to go through the course at their own pace during the week of the course.
There are three live sessions over the course of the week. The Welcome Session introduces the team and introduction to the course. The Q&A Session which consists of a panel of experts to answer questions related to the course. The last one is the MB Workshop which consists of going through an example of a case study that relates to the MB stream.
None of the live sessions are mandatory to complete the C-CAT course. We do recommend attending as it will be very beneficial and an opportunity to learn from industry experts.
