Here's an unexpected nugget of knowledge for us to peruse and ponder. Someone just emailed me with a poser, asking "Why are training courses from Altium so much cheaper in Australia?"
This observant chap informs me that an Altium training course in the USA costs $2,495 US dollars. He says that a similar course in Australia goes for $1,700 Australian dollars, which equates to approximately $1,100 US dollars.
He goes on to note that – after a little searching – he found a round-trip airfare to Australia for a budget price of only $1,029 US dollars. All of which means that (excluding a hotel room and a bar tab) someone in the US could fly to Australia and take a training course over there for less than it would cost to stay at home take the same course in the USA.
It's a funny old world...
