It's a fair amount of volume for lifting compared to what I'm used to at the moment, but it seems like it'd be fairly solid as a basic programme, maybe with some minor changes to the abdominal exercises recommended.
This is a bad beginner template because it includes too many exercises, and also because the actual lifts do not seem to be there. Oly training is pretty simple. Snatch, then clean and jerk. Squat 2 or 3 times a week.
