    Read more about the modules

Every module is offered once a year. It is, therefore, possible to finish the training within one year or to stretch it over a longer period of time.

Each module consists of compulsory on-site teaching. Modules 1 & 2, 3 & 4, and 5 & 6 are each taught together over 3 intensive weeks. Additional peer supervision/tutor consultation precedes intensive week 2 (Modules 3 & 4) and intensive week 3 (Modules 5 & 6).

Participants are free to start the training with either module 1 or 2. Modules 3, 4, and 5 can be taken in any order. Module 6 is the last module and builds upon the content of the first five modules. It has to be attended as the final module.
