Online Delivery of Classes

Unlike other online trainings, where the sessions are pre-recorded at the convenience of the mentor and used/played at the convenience of the students, TAHPI’s Health Facility Planning Course via Zoom is tied to a fixed schedule with LIVE classes enabling maximum face to face interaction with the tutor. Similar to TAHPI’s in-person classes, the admission of limited students are allowed for online sessions, in order to provide individual attention. Direct interaction with the tutor is a pre-requisite for TAHPI’s Health Facility Planning Course, considering, the depth of knowledge and information passed on during the sessions over 9 – 10 days.

Duration of Course

The course is usually a 10-day, 35+ hours intensive program run over 1.5weeks, 4 straight hours per day
