This course will enable the participant to obtain IICRC-TCST certification.

The Coach8 TCST course can be conducted face-to-face or online. The face-to-face course is held over a 2-day period encompassing 14 hours, not including meal breaks and exam periods. The livestream course is conducted for 4 hours per day over a 3-day period.
