Te Kaa Elect ONLINE takes the first four sessions of the Te Kaa In-person programme and breaks them into 8 x 4.5-hour online sessions. This is not a static webinar; it includes facilitation in real time to allow participants to be guided through the learning process and ask questions (and receive responses) as and when they arise.
In order to graduate as Te Kaa Amokura (alumni), we ask that you fully commit to attending all course sessions on the agreed dates and times; and being present and open to participating. With this in mind, please ensure the dates on the course outline (see Documents section below) are firmly locked in to your calendar.
A 50% deposit is payable on registration to secure your place, with the balance due by the 20th of the month before your programme starts.
Note: We offer a 10% discount for Not for Profits (evidence required) or two or more registrations from the same organisation. To obtain this discount, please use Discount Code NFPOCT2023 when registering.
