We think you can comfortably work your way through the course in 2 to 2.5 hours but it really does depend on how you learn and how many distractions or interruptions you may have.
We have structured the course as a series of bite-sized self contained lessons. Perhaps you can find 10, 20 or 30 minutes a day to learn or improve your skills - or perhaps you like to consume your courses all in one go! Each lesson has a specific learning objective so you can work through them in order or you can cherry-pick the topic you want to learn and just watch that video - handy for a quick refresher!
