Your membership includes access to an online, self-study, game development training library that allows you to train at home at your own pace. Everything that you see listed in the Training catalog, other than the certification programs, will be immediately accessible to you as a member. You will also get access to live streams, public student forums, and all user created channels and content.
All of the materials can be accessed directly through the website and are fully electronic, so there is no waiting. You can get started immediately following your purchase, and there are no expensive shipping charges or delays involved (especially important for international students)
