Hi Brian, thanks for posting. The link you are looking for is collapsed and can be expanded under the Price and Access tab at the bottom of the page. The actual link is http://www.proz.com/videos/cat%20tool%20webinars/236

This is a recorded video and not a "session" per se. Our system does not quite integrate video as well as we would like so you have to expand the price and access section to see the link.

We will be working on improving our video integration in the coming months.

Regards,

Drew
