The home study section of your course is very important for the successful completion of the course.
The more conscientiously you do your home study course, the more you will get out of your practical week, and the better you will understand the needs of your future clients.
On average, it takes between 60 and 100 hours to prepare for the practical course. This means that you need to allocate to your studies between 6 and 10 hours per week for about three months before the start of your practical week.
