We recognize these are financially challenging times for everyone and we’ve tried to reduce the fees for this course to allow everyone access. As a Red Cross training partner we need to pay $10 per student to the Red Cross. This helps support the Canadian Red Cross a not for profit organization providing emergency support and help for Canadians and others around the world.
The additional $5 helps support the administrative process so we can offer this course. We realize these fees may still present challenges so we’ve been working to help support participants regardless of the fees they are able to pay. We are working to provide funding for those in our community that can’t meet the course fees. Even before funding is received we will float your course fee if you can unable to pay. Please get in touch with us to discuss options that will work for you.
