Do the training because you may wish to learn something, but not because you can use it in the US; it is not accepted here.

So if you have extra cash then go for it. It wouldn't hurt you, but be on the lookout because it may just be another money-making scheme.
I am having difficulty with my nursing skills but i do know the theories well. It is true, as the other posters tell, that most hospitals will usually require you to be trained or retrained with all the nursing procedures before you could actually handle patients.
The hospital I am working in will be conducting classes in basic life support and triage nursing and I won't have to spend any single cent for it.

They can say what ever they want about their programs, but it comes down to the fact that no employer in the US is going to accept and of them and will pay for you to get trained in what ever they require.
Your choice as to what to do. Also be aware that since there is about a five year wait, most of these courses are only good for two years and have to be renewed every two years as well.

As we keep stating over and over again here, not one of their programs or classes is recognized in the US. Any employer will make you take it again if it is required. And more importantly, any of these so-called courses that they offer that they state are accepted have renewals every two years that are required. They become obsolete.NCCLEX trainings are very expensive! maybe because as they said, they are recognized in US. i was also interested in their program but upon knowing its cost... no..no..no..
But bet that they did not tell you that. They are tring to make it seem like they are affiliated with things in the US because of their name, but they are not in any way shape, or form.
Shoddy business practice when you try to confuse someone like this.
