The Intermediate and Advanced classes share a common core curriculum. The
biggest difference is that the Advanced course will cover the topics in
more depth. And, of course, there will be plenty of subjects unique to the
Advanced course.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Using the wildly-popular Scriptology book and CD from ISO Productions as
our primary text, these classes will help you learn everything you ever
wanted to know about scripting. (Well, whatever we can squeeze into a
couple of days, anyway...)

The fee for each class is $995. Each attendee receives a copy of the
Scriptology book and CD at no additional charge (an $80 value). Both
classes together are only $1,750 (you save $240).

Every student will have a computer. You will have plenty of opportunity to
follow along with the instructors and practice the scripting techniques as
they are presented. There will also be a 2-hour lab one night, so you can
practice what you've learned.
