Your first link works, but your second is broken.
As for the content though, that is the first time I have seen that myself, so thanks for posting.
I really cannot say how the online training will be, as I went to a college where they taught Max - I learned Softimage by myself shortly thereafter. I know some colleges offer their courses in Softimage - I think there is Flash Point in Chicago http://flashpointacademy.com/
However, my advice is that if you are going to poor money into something - if you are in the States - is to check to see if the place you want to attend is Accredited.
