    From an employees perspective I would be happy with either/or. Although getting both would be greatly appreciated, I would never expect my employer to pay for my advancement. If they were to pay for the class I would have no problem taking a days pay cut. Or get paid for an 8hr day of work and me pay for the class. If you're willing to pay for both, I tip my hat to ya!

    If its an employee you want to invest in, pay for it all. No sense making him/her think you're a non-appreciative cheapy.

    On the other hand, if its a group of non-achievers, pay them for the day if they buck up for the class. That way they have to make some kind of personal commitment. And you will find out who wants to better themselves.....
