Guidance Software Launches Online Training Program

Yep, the headline says it all but here's a bit more blurb from the press release:

"The program’s inaugural offerings—EnCase Computer Forensics I, EnCase Enterprise Implementation and EnCase v6 Features—are now available on demand. EnCase Computer Forensics I, one of Guidance Software’s most popular training courses, includes 32 hours of course work in 28 separate blocks of training. This introductory course is a hands-on experience that involves practical exercises and real-life simulations. The class provides participants with an understanding of the proper handling of digital evidence from the initial seizure and acquisition of the computer/media, to data analysis, archival and validation. The EnCase Enterprise Implementation module explains initial installation and configuration of the EnCase Enterprise platform. The EnCase v6 Features module is an individual, two-hour block of training that provides users with the latest updates included in the recently launched version of EnCase Enterprise, including explanations on new features."

I'm a big fan of online training in principle but I look forward to seeing what people make of this program in practice. Also, a cursory glance at the Guidance website revealed no pricing details - does anyone have that information?
