Costs and Payment

The deposit with successful application of £500 will be deducted from your total fees for the course, which are £3200 for 2019 intake.

We then require an additional minimum of £1000 before 1st April 2019, to ensure your place on the Trainer course.

If you pay full fees before the course starts (26th April 2019) we offer a £200 early bird discount.

Additional monthly payments can be arranged through CSY, but you must have your full fees paid by the end of September 2019.

Payments can be made by cash or bank transfer
