ISSP's Instructor-led Courses feature instruction in real-time, and participants have access to online forums, readings, and assignments. All sessions are recorded in case you are unable to attend the live session. Course materials, including session recordings, remain available for three months from the course’s start date. Attendance at live/online sessions is highly recommended, but never required. This allows students the flexibility to learn at their own pace while also benefiting from interaction with ISSP’s teachers and co-learners. Duration varies by course, but most take place over 4 weeks with weekly live sessions of 1 to 1.5 hours. ISSP members and members of ISSP Partner organizations can register at a discounted rate.
