The course, made of fifteen modules, is available on the Olympic Resources website.

The International Olympic Committee is offering a new interactive course about Female Athlete Health. The ISSF is pleased to promote this interactive course and to encourage all of its female athletes to visit the IOC website to get acquainted with this course and to complete all its modules.

 

The course is made of fifteen modules: each of them includes videos, facts and short quizzes, and they all contain a lot of nice graphic explanations of the topics. It is neither boring or burdensome.
