History ... we decided to make this training Friday Oct 12 and release it by Friday Oct. 26 needless to say that was a little too agressive for us. Our original TOC was about 35 videos and we made over 75 so far. Please stop by again as we'll be updating this site frequently.

All training is free (ad supported) if you see an interesting ad feel free to click it as ads will help keep the site running.

Subject to change at anytime without notice. Join our mailing list for updates as we make them.
