In this course, you will learn the concepts, tools, and skills to work more effectively with your clients to achieve results and to create a sustainable, mutually satisfying, and profitable relationship.
To make the most of your classroom experience, you must complete exercises before and after the classroom sessions.
Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.
