John Thornton never ceases to amaze me and capture my attention. Such a well groomed dedicated professional technical trainer. He is the standard all trainers should follow. And yes the topic is as sharp as the presenter.

Good morning Rudy, Yes these are going to be available for sale for purchase afterwards as a video. It will be live for purchase shortly after the event concludes. However, all of our events will come with that same digital copy that people are going to be able to purchase afterwards. Basically once you buy one of our events or videos you will be able to re-watch whenever and how ever many…
