Where possible, we strive to build the travel costs into the fees. It simplifies things for everybody.
Due to the nature of training, setting up the room and supplies, the special importance of the trainer being present on time, and the unpredictability of city traffic, the trainer may choose to stay in a close-by hotel the night before the course.
The courses are in-person participatory courses, for best impact. The training materials should not be copied in any manner. The training sessions should not be recorded or broadcast, w/o trainer's permission. Still photos and brief videos are fine. (under 3 minutes)
