Hey,
I was curious what everyone's opinion is of PM training (if you have one)? From what I read, it can either be totally awesome or the exact opposite.
Have any of you taken their classes? Would you recommend them based on your experience?
Thanks,

Groucho
I personally wouldn't go anywhere near it myself.. Too much corporate liability concerns injected into it for my tastes which impedes the ability of trainers, and I don't agree with their fundamental policies on training.

Fundamental policies??
I don't subscribe to a positive reward only training philosophy, which is their fundamental policy unless I am mistaken. I feel that animals learn equally well from both positive as well as negative consequences just like every other mammal. I feel some things are best learned from positive consequences, some are best learned by negative consequences, and a combination of both can be more more effective than either one by itself.

I can understand why they would impose such policies, but I wouldn't go near it.
