David Lucas Burge's courses seem to be based on memorizing specific pitches one at a time. Even if that worked, it isn't absolute pitch. People with absolute pitch can:

Identify by name individual pitches (e.g. F♯, A, G, C) played on various instruments.
Name the key of a given piece of tonal music.
Reproduce a piece of tonal music in the correct key days after hearing it.[citation needed]
Identify and name all the tones of a given chord or other tonal mass.
Accurately sing a named pitch.
Name the pitches of common everyday sounds such as car horns and alarms.
Name the frequency of a pitch (e.g. that G♯4 is 415Hz) after hearing it.

all without referring to a reference tone, given or memorized.

This is what children with absolute pitch can do:

If anyone learned to do this as an adult, post a similar video.
