Funny how it's come full circle in the last ten years. Back to where they started now, manufacturer's in-house training under the manufacturer's name. Driven by, of all things, quality control issues. Who'd have thunk it? A subsidiary run by moronic MBAs sacrificing quality in the name of cost. :rolleyes:
