The 'half day seminar' is just an orientation about the school and the 'classes' they offer. There is no trading here. It's deceptive. It is a high Pressure sales pitch! Classes are $6999.
I took the first 7 day class in June. I was told there would be Forex training in the class when I signed up and paid for the class. There was not! When I inquired about that I was told, 'That is another class'. Which, you guessed it! is another $6000! I was a little annoyed since that was specifically the class I said I wanted when I signed up. And then OTA wants you to take classes in a certain order, which are all $6-7000. 
The first class is on stocks,  $7,000! It was NOT worth that. A lot of the time was spent sales pitching the other classes. And the instructor busy trading his own account. There is some good info for newbies but not $7,000 worth!
I signed up to take another class during a one on one sales pitch by one of the coaches. There was so much pressure put on! I felt very bad about the decision I made at the time and I continued to feel that way later so I cancelled the class I was sched for well in advance and ask for a refund of the money I put down for that class. I just found out I am being transfered by my job, which I told them also.
I haven't received a returned call or email since from any of the 3 people I've contacted!
Very unprofessional!
Buyer beware!
