      Hi Abdul,

      The Web Intelligence 4.1 Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced class is an instructor led course and not based upon self-learning. The students are provided a virtual class environment and will be provided a PDF file of the course material (instructors slide deck). You will also be provided with a PDF regarding the class exercises that will occur during the 3-day class.

      I hope this explains. Please contact me directly if you have any other questions. Rick 623.349.2119

  2. I would be attending from a different time zone. What are the times for these classes?
