In my opinion, the cost of training and expenses should make you happy. I would NOT try to get ANY date rate out of the deal. In my eyes, you would be getting a bit greedy seeing that industry standard is to pay for your own training.Yeah, I am not paying for training. I figured he'd be responsible for all expenses, but didn't know if I should get paid for attending the training. I would definitely say it's deserved since it's a required event and two days of my time, but maybe at a lesser rate. Thanks for all of the replies!
