    Course structure

    The course is suitable for anyone involved in project management including managers, team leaders or C-Level executives wanting a better level of understanding.

    It runs for three days, over three consecutive weeks (from 9am until 4pm daily) and is recognised as making up 21 hours of the required 35 hours for the PMP certification.

    You could do a link to the additional info instead of doing a drop down, although it is probably uni style to have the drop down. I think having the additional info is a good thing, so it should be there somewhere. The website should be where the detail is housed.
