Dear Sri N. Kaushik,
Thanks for your post.
I can not comment for this particular course but from my personal experience with the courses conducted by INSDOC (Now CSIR-NISCAIR) is quite positive. As an employee of ICMR, I under went a week long course on Bibliometrics way back in 1997 and apart from successfully doing regular official bibliometric works, it enabled me to publish a paper in a Mainstream Scientific Journal. The (then) faculty & instructors were great. I am still indebted to them for my authorship in a Scientific Journal.

I have attended one, I found quite helpful. There are two organisations( NISCAIR and INFLIBNET ) who provide the training, both are good in the dissemination of knowledge. Regarding the course fee, I have no comment.
