When we launched the flagship version of our Tactical Analysis online program nearly a year and a half ago, we decided to begin offering our courses online for two reasons. The first was to meet the needs of one of our best clients who were looking for a way to scale our in-person course to their workforce that was distributed throughout the country. The second reason was to fulfill one of the initial goals that I had when I started The CP Journal.

As of last Friday, we are happy to announce that the recording of the new version for our “Basic Course” is complete. Here is what you can expect to see happen in approximately two weeks and over the next couple of months: Continue reading »
