Need to get trained in Axure RP

Anyone recommend an organization/individual/web resource that they've used to receive formal training in Axure RP?  In person preferred, but online training will also be quite alright.  How much did it cost and what levels of instruction were available? Thanks!

Centred Layout Vs Left Aligned

One of those old chestnuts that keeps rearing its head in discussion with client and/or the visual design team.

Left aligned (fixed width) sites are evil right? ;-)

Anyone got any evidence to the contrary?

Love to hear your thoughts.

Best practice for for number of items in a dropdown on a web form?

Hello everyone. This is my first post on IxDA. :) I've been
developing web applications for a few years now, and usability has
always been a priority, but I have only really started obessesing
about usability in the last year or so.

A colleague and I had a discussion about the maximum number of
elements that should be used in a (select) dropdown menu on a web
form.

He thinks that fifteen is the maximum. Me? I'm not quite sure what
to think.
