  • Are you really giving away a full course for free ?

    Yes. Times are tough and we thought an almost one hour long free course would be perfect for new customers to discover BIMS SEMINARS and my teaching style. This ONLINE platform will only allow you to acces stuff, even completely free videos or courses, if you create your free account. It is safe and I , Dr. Vito LEO, commit to never disclose your name or email to anybody. So go ahead and enjoy the free course on Differential Cooling aspects. (no need to enter VAT code since there will be no invoicing...).

  • How exactly can I access the free introductory videos describing the courses ?

    The free intro videos are embedded in the course as a free feature. To be able to watch the free videos you have to be registered on the platform, which is both free and totally risk free. You just have to sign-in with an email/name, create yopur password, and you are good to go. No obligation to buy anything. If you find a course that you like you will then be able to buy access by following the instructions .

  • Where can I get more details about the instructor or courses, including full BIMS-1 or BIMS-2 courses ?

    Please visit our website at : https://www.bims-seminars.com If you click on the square blue BIMS logo on the top-left of the screen, you will be magically teleported to the website.

  • How are these online courses different from you "touring" BIMS-1 and BIMS-2 seminars ?

    BIMS-1 and BIMS-2 are two days long public or private sessions. Because these are live sessions, we privilege the interactions during the course, but must limit the content to fit the overall schedule. In the online courses we will go deeper into the subjects or cover additional aspects that we cannot cover in the BIMS-1/BIMS-2 sessions. So the public sessions offers the specific adavantage of meeting other people working in the field and discuss with them or me. The online sessions offer the possibility of going deeper into the subject and the very powerful value of digesting the material at one own's pace. The ability to play and replay allows you the extract maximum value from the online training. In the public sessions, people are usually a bit overwhemed by the sheer amount of information distilled in two days, and can only really grasp part of it. Many people actually take the BIMS-1 or 2 multiple times over a few years. Overall, the two approaches complement each-other very well.

  • Can we order as a company multiple seats and pay later with a classical invoicing process ?

    Yes you can. One customer already ordered 44 seats for the full bundle course. They sent me a P.O. and I invoice the customer later and comply with their accounting/payable processes. In the meanwhile, I can manually enroll those students as they identify themselves on the platform with their name, email, etc.

  • Do you offer "Company wide logins" or "annual subscriptions ?

    Everything is possible with this platform. Obviously we would have to negotiate pricing based on extent, number of employees, etc.

  • I don't understand if VAT will be added to the amount shown as a price ?

    To make life easier to all, the final total price will always be the one shown on the button. If you register as a Eu company with a correct VAT code, you will get an invoice compliant with Eu exchanges (both your and my VAT code on the invoice, no VAT to pay to us). If you register as an individual or choose not to fill-in VAT code, I will take the VAT expense on my side (21%). But the final price for you will still be the amount shown, like 80 EUR for instance. Effectively, private students are paying a lower price to me, since I take care of paying the VAT myself. Distant customers (US, Asia, etc) buy without VAT which is not due based on Eu regulations.

  • Will I have access to the lesson and slides forever once I enrolled and paid ?

    No. Well, the slides are downloadable, so you'll keep them forever. The video material will be available for you to view and review for several months, with no limits on number of replay. Leaving unlimited access would harm my business over the long term, allowing people to share the course. However, if large companies would like to negotiate an annual subscription fee, we can discuss that. Note that we recently extended the full-bundle access to a whole 3 months. Students that really don't make it can always get in touch and I will be happy to extend access for free.
