Ighillas - Paris asked:

Shall I respect 12 months to ashieve the end of this course or I can ashieve it for example in 2, 3, 4... months?

Answer:

All GoSkills courses are online and self paced, so you can complete the course at your convenience. The Public Speaking course is 36 lessons and we estimate that a lesson will take 30 minutes to complete. So, the entire Public Speaking course will take you approximately 18 hours to complete. You have 12 months access to the course, but if you complete in the first month that works. You can just use the course as reference for the remaining 11 months. Thanks, GoSkills Support
