There is no limit to the number of courses you can pursue at one time. However, considering the required investment of time and effort, tentatively 2-8 hours of learning each week, we recommend that the learner can begin with one course at a time.

For live online courses, it is strongly recommended that one should not enroll in more than one live course at a time. You could, of course, take one live course and one (or more) self-paced course at the same time depending on your time availability, etc.
