    Will this be offered again within this year?Oct 28, 2014

    I will be attending a full-day training the entire week (10th - 14th). This is the one course I was looking forward to. Will this be offered again within this year? I know Becky said that this would be her last year as a trainer, but I really enjoy her session.
