Course Fees

Public course fees and length vary depending on the subject matter and type of course. View the course outline and schedule for details. Registration fees cover all course materials and computer time for lecture/workshop courses. Early registration is recommended because classes fill quickly. An early bird discount for 10% off standard course fees is available for most courses when you register and pay for the course at least four weeks in advance of the course start date. A group discount for 10% off standard course fees is also available for most courses for individuals from the same organization who register and pre-pay for the same public course together.
