If you proceed at your own pace, we offer a coaching service to keep you on track, please contact us for more information.
You can skip as many lectures as you want: it is in your interest, and your interest only, to attend the lectures to fully absorb the topics. Also, in case you want to attend, but you cannot, the recordings of the lectures will be available for you to catch up.
