Group Training

International Programming hosts group training sessions at the beginning of every semester for interested students. This gives the opportunity for students to share ideas with each other as they go through the short training with an ISSB coordinator. Besides group training, we also arrange private training sessions for students who join ISSB throughout the year.

Check back on this website for fall 2017 semester training times.
