Yes, hat's pretty much my experience.  My company (software.coop) is
in the third sector but offers services to all.  I don't really push
training and we only really sell it as an add-on to other work. Our
free tester sessions have had positive feedback, but some of them have
had low turnouts, so there's not been one for some time and our course
materials need updating.

I'm still disappointed that the FDL has been used for that.  We need
to promote these skills more widely and easily than that allows.
