Premium Education? aka Rant no. 47,632

I have found that there are very few 6.1 training classes available, We
were trying to line up some scheduling training and Materials Management
course's in January, one day they were available and the next day they
were gone.

There was also several Online recorded training sessions in the EpicWeb
education area that we singed up for. I had signed up for about 20 - 25
classes and suddenly my signup list was blank and all remaining
available classes now cost from $195 and up.

>>>>> This is BS

Good Morning,



I would like to poll those of you up to and prior to version 6.1.
regarding your training needs. In September, 2005 when we converted
from Vista to Vantage 6.1, we purchased the Premier Education
Subscription Classes for $5,000. which allowed us the opportunity to
have our employees attend as many classes as necessary for 1 year. At
the time, we thought it was a great deal because our only training
expense would be travel, lodging and meals. Now, there are no classes
available for 6.1, only 8.0. Epicor says they do not have anyone
interested in 6.1 classes. Yet they are not offering any prorated
refund. If any of you need some 6.1 classes offered, would you please
let Epicor know? If we're the only ones affected by this - I'll just
carry on.......with as little irritation as possible.



Thank you for allowing me to vent.
