I've been in contact with Alex at Lightly Treading, and they are not having the Colorado Springs class in January.
Not sure why, but she said it was due to low enrollment as one of the reasons...
They are having a BPI analyst course in Denver, though, the week of February 13-17th,
with a possible push back a week, due to Valentines day that week, and out of town guests considerations.
She will let those who are signed up, know if the class is moved back a week.
.
I'm signed up to attend.

Contact me via email for details if needed.

I registered for this course in Chicago. That's a $1600 course, you can't beat free.

Yeah no kidding. Whoever won that grant good job. I think we will see quite a bit of this through March when ARRA expires. At that point I hope BPI has a plan in place cause Resnet has been cutting tons of deals with what has always been the real future of the EA industry.......the contractors.

James, good to hear...
Let me know if and when you might be going, and maybe we can car pool somehow, depending on if you may be commuting to Denver, or ?
