No. The course content of the various schools or course locations differs slightly from each other, but sometimes only slightly.

Should this be an issue for your EU project, we are happy to send you the course curriculum before you book.
Please note that cultural events, excursions planned outside of the training rooms, but also other course teaching can change at short notice due to Corona or other conditions.
