Cogent Consulting is trying a new idea next year called Easy Access Training. The idea is simple. Training courses often run over multiple weekdays, and can be quite expensive. That can make them inaccessible to people who either can't get the time off work, or don't have budget support from their boss to pay for it. So Cogent is offering one day courses on a weekend, and the seats are auctioned off, so it is possible to get one reasonably cheap.
