The curriculum is structured into ten learning modules and is accompanied by training materials, including a facilitator’s guide, slide presentations, handouts, and pre-recorded webinars to allow for multi-day trainings.

Finally, it encourages the early identification and mitigation of risks with programming, as well as ensuring a Do No Harm approach.
