With the development of the CIMC online Course, there is now no need to wait for her to reach your shores! You can have the same experience, and enjoy the same learning, all from the comfort of your own home. This is an invigorating and inspiring course as practice and research come together.

The CIMC Course comprises of 18 hours of seminars, video demonstrations, and interactive learning tasks, narrated by Professor McIntosh. The units can be completed together or separately, with access to follow-up webinars and supervision opportunities.
