Hello!

Are the following sentences equal?

1) Course involves 3 days of training and 10 hours of 1 on 1 each day.

2) Course involves 3 days of training for 10 hours a day.

The first sentence is from native speaker.

Thanks in advance.

The first sentence means "трэніроўка адзін з адным" (teacher and student).

No, of course. Firstly, what does the word "and" in the first sentence mean? One can understand it as "plus" (which is doubtful). If not, I think there must be a comma. Please make it more exact.
Secondly, anyway, in the second sentence the specification "1 on 1" is omitted, therefore the sentences are not quite equal.

That's not very likely. There is no reason for the zero article with the word "course" in the first place.
