@aptivadave: The cost is for the subsidized hardware, which is required for the course. I don't believe there's a course only (i.e. if you have the ward already) option, given this snip"Your registration will be confirmed once payment for this event has been made..."
The issue is due to video being embedded in the page (i.e. out of context from its original page/location). If you click through to the original post, Mads Kristensen Extensions, you'll get the full video functionality.
