Label courses about deprecated PI programs as such and state the replacement program
If a customer is not paying attention to which PI programs are or will be deprecated (and there are quite a few of them), then they can end up wasting their time and money taking a course about a program that OSIsoft plans to trash in the next while.
Please help steer the customer's attention, time, and money towards learning about programs that OSIsoft is actually pushing for. This will speed up both the adaptation of the new programs and the downfall of the old ones.
The courses about deprecated PI programs are:
• PI WebParts Class
• Building Basic Displays With PI ProcessBook
• Building Advanced Displays With PI ProcessBook
• Configuring Calculations With PI ACE

It has been a while since I posted this suggestion. All of the courses that I mentioned in the original suggestion are gone. There are no more courses about PI WebParts or PI ACE.
Anything related to using PI ProcessBook in the online courses seems to have been concentrated into PI ProcessBook: Basics. It is the last course and the only specialized course in the User learning path, which makes it less likely for a user to take it "just because" or "just in case".
About half of Visualizing PI System Data (Clients) in French, Spanish, and Portuguese is focused on PI ProcessBook, so this course is half outdated. PI ProcessBook was removed from the English version of the course's workbook, so any versions of the course that use the English workbook are in the clear (i.e. English, German, Italian, and Polish versions).
This suggestion is almost completed. There just needs to be some mention that customers should consider using PI Vision instead of PI ProcessBook. Also, if we want to be more thorough, please label playlists and videos about deprecated PI programs as such.
