Hi,

I would like to take this course, but due to the time difference, the course would be given at 5 AM Argentine time... is there any possibility to give this course again in the near future at a later time?

Thanks in advance!

Time differenceAug 20, 2014

I have just received an answer from the Helen (Proz.com staff member) and she has confirmed that the webinar will start on the 10th of September at 6PM, Brisbane time (GMT + 10).

Unfortunately, I could not choose the time for this webinar, the only thing I could ask about was not placing it between 1AM-5AM Australian time. As far as I understand, Proz.com runs several webinars on the 10th, that can explain the choice of the time.

I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello Asimenia,

Thank you for your interest in the training. At the moment I cannot say if we will have the same session in the near future, but you can always purchase unlimited access to the webinar video and handouts to be released shortly after the webinar.

My bests,
Helen
