Video Skill Levels

We have created four different skill levels for each video within our library. All of our videos are placed into at least one of these levels. Some of our lectures cover two skill levels and are marked accordingly.

  • Novice: 0 – 1199 rated
  • Beginner: 1200 – 1499 rated
  • Intermediate: 1500 – 1799 rated
  • Advanced: 1800 – higher rated

We have found that most of our users benefit from all the different skill levels. Everyone learns at a different pace. You can pick and choose which skill levels are most comfortable for you.


There are several fantastic features in the members area that will help you get the most out of our site.
Suggestion Box

      It is important to us that our members have the ability to send suggestions to our team of masters. Perhaps you have a particular opening that you’d like to know more about or a pet line that you would like more details on. Our suggestion box is just for this purpose. Once one of our masters receives a suggestion from a member the master evaluates it to make sure that he or she can do the lecture. If so, then they are happy to produce a new video on your topic. If you choose to become a member we strongly suggest that you take advantage of this feature. It will help you get more out of the game and more out of your membership with us.
