Training - Anything available on-line, Virtual Seminars, CD, or at client's house?

As much as I want to attend the seminar in person, our company has cut out all travel from the budget. Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as a contact for providing on-site training? Also, I keep reading about “the manual” in some of the posts. Where is this wonderful source of knowledge? As is common in the community, I have been dumped with a pregnant elephant with no manual for delivery, so to speak. Thank you very very much for any help you can provide!
