Free Seminars with a Caveat

For several years now, we have been offering free training seminars at strategic locations around the country. This Fall, we have a slew of new seminars planned, and more may be in the works.

Although other developers charge substantial fees for training like this, we have always offered these seminars completely free of charge. Unfortunately, when you sign up for a free seminar starting early on a Saturday morning, it's easy to hit the snooze button and decide not to show up. In the US, a growing number of no-shows is starting to make offering seminars cost-prohibitive. We have therefore decided to change our registration policy to make that snooze button a little less appealing.

You can now pre-register for an Accordance training seminar with a $25 non-refundable deposit. As long as you show up for the seminar, or cancel no later than five days in advance, your entire deposit will be credited toward your next Accordance purchase. In this way, the training is still "free," because all your money is actually going toward expanding your Accordance library; but of course, there is now a cost associated with attending the seminars which was not there before.

Those who sign up at the door will pay a $30 deposit and get $20 of that credited toward their next Accordance purchase. Obviously, it pays to pre-register.

Complete details about the new policy can be found here. We're confident that you'll find the training you receive well worth the money you spend . . . especially when you get it back on your next Accordance purchase.

Sounds fair enough. With how much it costs for you to travel around & host these things, it's a wonder you don't charge a lot more, plus with the $25 credited to your next purchase simply makes since. I think it's a good policy.

It's hard to attend a seminar and not spend something anyway! :-D

Good policy.
