MarkLogic Announces Free NoSQL Database Training Courses

From the post:

MarkLogic Corporation, the leading Enterprise NoSQL database platform company, today announced the schedule for its MarkLogic University public courses with hands-on instruction to attending users and developers free of charge. The courses are led by an instructor in various live, online, and classroom locations, and provide MarkLogic customers and developers with the training to optimize their NoSQL database deployments and the education to develop applications on the MarkLogic database.

Since 2001, MarkLogic has focused on providing a powerful and trusted Enterprise NoSQL database platform that empowers organizations to turn all data into valuable and actionable information. The MarkLogic University program was created to give customers the access to best practices for managing vast amounts of diverse data. Now project managers, architects, developers, testers, and administrators can improve their MarkLogic skills with no cost training.

“The demand for MarkLogic development and administration skills is increasing in the market and with a sharp focus on customer success, we are dedicated to providing easy access to information and education that will assist developers and IT professionals to better manage and do more with their data,” said Jon Bakke, senior vice president, global technical services, MarkLogic. “By making MarkLogic training resources widely available, we are helping to build up much-needed technical skills that enterprises need to derive value from the vast amounts of enterprise data that is being created and stored today.”

But, when I visit:

I see refundable booking fees. (As of 10 February 2013 at 15:00 EST.)

Nor could I find a statement by MarkLogic on its blog or pressroom confirming free classes.

I have seen this at several sources and suggest further inquiry before anyone gets too excited.
