Introducing... Training Credits

This is a game changer.

We've heard the feedback from current pass holders. Training passes are rigid. You can't transfer them to another individual in your organization. You are tied to a particular discipline. We listened and we shifted. The new program is what you've been waiting for.

Benefits of the new program include:

  • Flexibility -- training credits can be redeemed by anyone in your organization at any time within 12 months of purchase.
  • Cost-Effective -- buy your credits in bulk and save money. Not to mention, one transaction saves time and paperwork.
  • Simplicity -- no need to know what you want to use the credits for or who will use them -- use them when you need them.
