Just looking over the program, sounds like a way for them to extend their
reach and get a return at a later date (I only know Word, etc). Wow, online
probably costs them next to nothing.
How would you propose going about this?
BTW (in VA), I believe if you are over 60 you can go to a Comm College for
free and take classes. Might be a way to get free training that way as well.
<Slightly different rant>
Several times in the past I've tried to see about getting people to teach cert
classes like LPI or others. The problem is that trainers do not have any
incentive or desire to teach for free.
Would you teach a bunch of Luggers for free if you could get $2500+ for a day
or two of class?
That is the problem.
I would like to get my CSM cert but right now I can't take the time off from
work to get this cert. And, no one wants to teach nights, weeknights, and
they don't offer web based training.
