Training is Hard to Get
One of my goals this year, is to earn my MCSD for .NET, however training in the Central IL area is very spotty, and damn near impossible to get. I recently signed up for 2710: Analyzing Requirements and Defining Microsoft .NET Solution Architectures through Levi, Ray, & Shoup (LRS), and I was just informed today that my class had been cancelled due to the lack of interest. What am I? Am I not interested?
This just reminds me of when a co-worker went through LRS earlier this year for some training, and he got a one-on-one training course only because they forgot to cancel the class. Lucky him, I guess...but still, why do they need to cancel classes when you have at least 1 interested person trying to further educate themselves. If you started a public school, and only had 1 kid, would you turn them away because you're class wasn't large enough? No, because that kid would not get the education he or she needs. Why is this any different?
I'm really not pleased with LRS right now about this, and as such I may have to go to Peoria or Chicago to actually get my training...at least in Chicago they assure you're class won't get cancelled. Which, unfortunately means that its going to cost me/my company more $$ to send me off to training. Oh well, its all for the good of me, right? LRS doesn't think so.
