Hey @TanyaGorbunova,


Thank you so much for sharing this very useful post with usefull links, but i have a cocern with timings.

If I am in India and i need to attend these training then i need to wake up till 1:00 in the night + training time.


Can you do something regarding this as there are too many members out there from different timezones

or if i subscribe for training then is there any recording available for these sessions?


if you like it, remember to give "kudos" 🙂

Hi Himanshu,


As far as I know, all training sessions are being recorded. So, you should get a link to watch the training after it's finished.

However, I'll let our training team know about this time complexity. Thanks!
