The course consists of 11 lessons, of 15 to 150 minutes duration each, and it is based on the IPC technical Manual version 2.0, which was originally published in 2012. It is self-paced learning and uses a variety of learning methods to get to grips with each topic: storytelling, illustrative case studies, interactive self-assessment tests and practice exercises.

The course has been developed in the framework of IPC Certification Programme which consists of three certification levels.
