The difference between a class and a course?
The primary difference between a courses and classes is in how they’re used. A course is designed to run for a fixed period of time and be sold as a single pass, a course pass. A class can be one-off, or recurring and can be accessed via selling a membership or visit pass.
Some other differences are as follows
Classes: members book themselves in as and when they choose with the rights they have via their membership or pass.
Courses: members are automatically booked in to all course classes when they are enrolled in the course. They can cancel out of a course class if they can’t make it.
Classes: Typically recurring on a regular basis, weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
Courses: Are for a fixed number of classes
Classes: Are your weekly open schedule
Courses: Are most often used for introduction courses, bootcamps and seminars
