Yes. This is an in-person, hands-on training course.
Might be worth the travel, considering the topics to be covered and the potential to establish professional relationships (with the instructors from NIH and with the other participants) during the training. We usually have participants not only from NIH institutes, but also from across the country and even from outside the country.

Unfortunately not. The fee does not include the stay (hotel+food). You can check with [email protected] (contact info available at the registratio page) to see if they have any options to provide you with any special rate, especially since you would be attending with your own cost.
