In this course there is no connections to the working life.
There is one examination during the implementation. Renewal of examination is possible in two events after implementation.
An abandoned learning diary can be supplemented and should be returned according to a separate instruction.
In this course there is no international co-operation connections.
Time resource for implementation:
- introduction 2 hours
- theory lectures 52 hours
- examination 2 hours
