Hi, I am trying to assist my company in putting together the paperwork for a 186 nomination. We have a few questions about meeting Training Benchmark B. 1) I gather that expenditure will not count if the training is only undertaken by persons who are principals in the business or their family members. Do you think this would apply to Governance training for the Board of Directors? 2) Would an in-house multi-day Leadership training course be deemed too broad or do you think we could include it if we could demonstrate the learning outcomes/progress requirements? Looks like I may need the help of Agent but would appreciate any initial guidance!
