The concept of building a class series is merely a tool to motivate a student to sign up for multiple, related classes. Classes in a series are not required to be built on each other in linear fashion. The group of classes may be tangentially related or selected arbitrarily.
Offerings in a Class Series should be structured to stand-alone as individual topics. Those that build on each other, or those with some tangential relationship in subject matter, can be combined in a grouping. In short, the Series can be a grouping of related content or skills, either applying to a particular general topic, or skill building by degree of difficulty or complexity.
Not all classes need to be structured for the complete beginner. Classes can assume a degree of proficiency in certain areas. This information should be explicit in the class proposal, so the classes can be marketed to groups of students who have the requisite degree of proficiency.

There will be a recognition of completion once a student completes a class grouping. This is not a certificate of achievement or any acknowledgment of a certain level of proficiency. This is merely a recognition of attendance for groups of related classes.
