I don't think it's a fit for HPR in any way.

This site is selling a service, not to potential attendees, but instead 
to third party businesses.  From what I gathered it works like this: 
vendor signs up for the Cybrary service, Cybrary provides the 
broadcasting technology / marketing services and audience for the 
"classes".  Basically anyone who has attended a vendor webinar (such as 
RedHat Wdbinars) will be familiar with the concept: toss out an overview 
of a product with little in-depth technical information, make certain 
there are plenty of sales and marketing reps available to answer the 
sales questions, and say "we'll get back to you" for any technical 

I have this impression based on this page: 

Especially the sentence: "Get started by talking to a Business Services 
Representative today." It doesn't appear to be about education, instead 
they are a marketing service masquerading as a school.
