Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
For Teachable content: the course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.

For Online class streams, the next one day workshop begins on the Sunday 26th April, 9am to 5pm AEST.

How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to the teachable content of this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.

For the Online Live Classes, you'll have access to the stream during the day, and access to the general students discord sever forever (or as long as it stays active).
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
How do I get the Freakmo Kits to go along with the courses?
Unfortunately the kits are no longer available. I will link the individual products I use under the Kit video.
How do the online live classes work?
The live courses are an optional extra that will be hosted on google hangouts, and we will have our own dischord sever. They are intended to help create the ''in-person"" experience to online learning with real time feedback and classmates. They'll be limited to 8 people per class. If you wanted to just watch and learn, rather than follow along that's fine too!

If you turn your webcam on or not is optional, but with access to seeing your applications I can give real time feedback on how to improve them/help with problems that arise.
The content being covered will be the exact same as the teachable content, but with access to me to ask questions, and get live feedback.

The discord server will also be a place for students to hang out, post photos of their applications, ask questions, and talk to each other.
