Free functional safety training? My Father used to have the mantra "There's no such thing as a free lunch". I never got the meaning as a child...all my lunches seemed to be free?

Of course, I think I understand now. If you are offered anything for free then there is usually a "catch" of some sort. The catch might be an associated sales pitch, or a later charge for something you don't really want or need, but forgot to cancel because someone has your card details. I've been a victim of this myself, so would not inflict this approach on others.
