About the course
Remote work can be defined as a working style which allows an individual to work outside of a traditional office environment. Remote work has developed since the global recognition that work does not need to be done in a traditional office environment for it to be completed successfully. This does not mean you only work from home, it involves the ability to work in spaces such as coffee shops, in a hotel, co-working spaces or working in any other space that suits you and your lifestyle best.
