Does ILEETA post upcoming training?

When ILEETA began creating E-Bulletins we were inundated with requests to post upcoming training announcements, (not surprising since we are an organization of trainers). So we partnered with and put a link on our web site to this service. They are the go to place for trainers to look for training by subject, date or location and they are very reasonable. The E-Blasts that appear in the E-Bulletins are restricted to ILEETA Corporate Sponsors and the only other posting you might see for training in the e-bulletins would be for free training.
