Firstly, wish you the best with this !! Like KG mentioned, we could do with some 
more python programmers.

On the topic of slides/notes, IMHO, free (as in freedom) documents are good. My 
recommendation would be to make your slides/notes available (possibly for a fee) 
under a CC-BY-SA (and possibly NC) license. This might also help people who 
cannot/do not want to attend the training but would like to buy/download the 

I understand completely the point about the time and effort it takes to create 
content (having conducted trainings myself) but that's a one time investment. 
Having free documents /might/ help you improve them via suggestions/patches from 

just my opinion.
