You start when you wish, and proceed at your pace and schedule. There are no rigid schedules or set class times. Your personal instructor, a certified PM, gives you feedback on every assignment and answers all your questions within 24 hours. You contact your instructor directly by phone or e-mail and you the two of you have private videos conferences whenever you wish.
