Four new Alpha University courses you don't have to drive or fly to

We spent a good deal of time on the road this year holding our Alpha University training courses in Las Vegas, London, and Boston. So this time around you can skip the planes, trains, and automobiles. We're bringing four new Alpha Five training courses to you online.

They're taught live, so you can ask questions in the chat window while class is in session. Classes vary in length and meeting times, but they're all designed to cover a lot of material in short order to make the most efficient use of your time.

At the end, you'll receive a certificate for each course you complete. But if you miss any of the sessions or have to duck out early, you'll receive a recording of each one. Let's get to the new Alpha Five courses you can sign up for.

One final note. If you've attended any of the Alpha University training courses in person this year, you're eligible for free recordings of one or more of these upcoming classes.
