A superb choice for medium sized Seminar Institutions We chose this extension because we wanted to facilitate seminar administration for a small writing academy in Switzerland.

The extension has all the must have functionality out of the box. (Set up courses, display a course list in the front-end, accept bookings, send invoices and attendee-lists, produce course certificates.) Whats more: I am confident that the team behind OSG Seminar Manager is committed to continually developing this extension further. An important consideration for us because we are in the seminar business for the long term and would not want to use an extension that may go away in a year or two.
I have yet to find another free extension with so many useful features packed under its hood. I would have gladly paid a couple of hundred bucks for this package and that is what I donated after everything was up and running.
Thanks OSG Team.

I am new to Joomla so I needed help to just figure out how to install the extension. Viktor was patient with me and very helpful. It turned out to be very easy to install, once I knew what to do.

The extension itself is the best seminar listing and booking software I have found for our purpose - better than any of the paid extensions.

It is easy to customize the extension to meet our specific needs.

Many of the other extensions don't make provisions to list the Instructor for the course. That seems strange, because in our experience most people want to know who is teaching the course.

I have searched everywhere - not just Joomla, but everywhere I could think of - and in my humble opinion, this is the best Seminar Listing and Booking software I have seen.

They have great demos of the front end and the back end, and you can review all of the documentation.

I was even able to test the demo to make sure that we could embed a page with an instructor's seminars into a web page on the instructor's web site. It "responsive" feature even works on the small pages we created for mobile devices.

To be fair, there are some extensions I haven't tried because their demos are so limited that I cannot tell if they will meet our needs or not, and they emphasize that they will not provide a trial period or give a refund if their extension doesn't meet our needs.

That is not a problem with the OSG Seminar Manager. It hasn't cost us anything, but we will definitely be sending them a nice donation to thank them for the great work that they do.

We learned long ago that when you have enough confidence in your product to offer a money back guarantee, you sell more products.

OSG goes even further: They have so much confidence this this great product that let you use it and then pay on the honor system once you see how much it is worth.

Love this extension, which makes the Seminar Manager really usefull. Only litte failure: The date is displayed in English instead of German, but this might be changed within the next update. Very good. Can recommend this piece of software.

Even though it is free it is the most comprehensive package for seminar/course management. It contains payment gateway (paypal) and every essential elements in booking system. If you found CiviCRM is bit complicated. it is the second best.

Excellent extension, perfect upgrade for the "Joomla 1.5 Seminar Manager" by Dirk Vollmar (I've been searching for a long time).
All views, CSS classes and tables are clear structured so you can customize the extension and use the tables for your own modules with just a little experience.

This is a great alternative to Course Manager, and best of all it is free.

Coming from a background of using Course Manager, it was very straightforward to pick up, and I have noticed no bugs thus far.

Great work

A lot of functions, seems to have been a lot of work, but in my opinion not so userfriendly. And I got an error 404 when klicking on the link in the menu for the courses after setting it up including the course for more than half an hour ... probably not SEM-friendly? Little bit frustrating. Might really get a good extension. But for me to unhandy. Sorry!

I'm sure this would be a useful extension but there is no support or documentation for installing or configuring it. It would be helpful if there was even just a list steps for the correct sequence.

Sorry - I think it could be very useful.
