You can miss one weekend or 20 hours (10% of the course) and make them up with homework; any additional time off, you would need to either pay to participate in another training's weekend or pay for a trainer to sit with you and go over the content – basically paying for a private session. You can also work with a peer to have the entire weekend recorded; but there would still be a tutorial fee for going over the material one-on-one with someone with expertise.
If you miss more than 20% of the course (even with make-up work), you are not eligible for certification. To sum up: you can miss one weekend, and make it up with homework; if you miss a second weekend, you can pay to make it up in person with a training/trainer; any absences beyond 20%, you are no longer eligible for certification. Of course, you could complete the course for your own depth and experience and we would welcome that; but if you're interested in being certified, showing up counts!
