Yes, the training not only includes the technical skills but general skills as well which are required to function efficiently in geographically distributed, multicultural and international teams (e. g. leading a team, project management skills).

Ideally, it requires your full time commitment. But if you have confidence in your existing skill set and you can balance the training alongside your existing workload, you are most welcome to try. The course design is largely self paced, so you decide your own pace. But the help of our trainers would only be available during working hours, and failure to follow the pace required to maintain your standing would result in termination of your enrollment.
