Yes, it will be possible to renew the access.
The courses encompass all the information provided by me in an onsite course. One significant advantage is the opportunity to revisit the techniques after trying them out and engaging in discussions with me for further clarification. I am confident that following this learning sequence—first understanding the technique, experimenting with it, and then meeting with the teacher for clarifications and problem-solving — can yield excellent results.
