No prior management or leadership knowledge is required.
If you have been a manager for more than 2 years and have attended several other courses on management and leadership then this course is probably not for you. Or if you are looking for a course on how to create an engaging slideshow presentation or how to plan the budget of a project, then it is not for you either.
