The program of the training is built in such a way that there is progressive step-by-step learning by doing and it is adopted to the learning needs of the group. This means that each piece of content that is delivered, will be integrated into the new contents that follow it. Like Lego bricks, they will be put over each other in a consistent way. For every step, the learning will be done by putting the content into practice, so it is performed and not only discussed.
