He lists only free online seminars. No paid ones.

These free teleseminars and webinars are part of his research and sharing the listings with people proves the wide and inexpensive reach of the Internet. To submit your free teleseminars and online classes, go here: http://www.freeteleseminarlist.com/submit-webinar.html.
