Greetings.  I've made several purchases via Bleeping Computer and for the most part I am very satisfied.  I've passed several on to colleagues as well and they're happy too.

 

My question is about the courses offered.  Would it be possible for the company offering web-based course and training to provide a brief sample of their typical training?  It need not be an entire lesson, just enough for a prospective customer to get a "feel" for the style and nature of the training.

 

The reason I ask is that I did purchase a lifetime membership to eduBCA hoping to take advantage of their Maya training.  Unfortunately, there are issues--the files referenced in the lessons are not available for download (that I can find, anyway).  The second problem is the instructor.  He clearly knows his stuff; unfortunately his accent is impenetrable and I'm missing at least a third to one-half of what he says. 

 

Had I known this in advance I would not have made the purchase, and I'm reluctant now to make similar purchases.

 

This may not be practical from either side, but I just wanted to leave the suggestion.

 

Thank you!

Good suggestion. I will run it by stackcommerce and see if there is anything they can do in regards to this.

I reached out to StackCommerce and they said they will be adding a feature like this in the near future, but may be a few months.

Best I can offer right now.

I just wanted to say thank you again.   Most of the training offers are now offering brief samples of lessons, and it's making it much easier for me to decide.  I purchased the VTC one as soon as I had the money, thanks to the samples they offered.
