For the things we have to learn before we can do them,
we learn by doing them.

teach me and I may remember,
involve me and I learn

I know its value by not having it.

How much is training really worth?
Here’s a secret - our training contains no exclusive, magical information. You could learn all the things we cover in class with freely available resources on the internet. However - we’re pretty confident and our clients agree that what might take a day of self-directed study can be covered in class in under an hour, because we’ve taken the time to curate the most important parts, and optimized the way that you learn them in glass. Every day of class clocks in at about a week of self-directed learning. Now, once we consider opportunity cost of all the time spent, it turns out training is still the better deal.
