Sustainability Training

Classes arrangement:

During the registration process for our courses, attendees have the option to indicate their preferred format, either via Zoom or in-person.

If fewer than 5 attendees express a preference for an in-person class, the physical class will be canceled, and only the Zoom class will be offered.

If more than 5 attendees prefer attending the course in-person, a hybrid format will be provided, allowing participants to attend via Zoom or in-person.

Three days prior to the course date, we will send an email containing the Zoom link for the training session. The email will also specify whether a physical class will be available.
