Enterprise Training Agreement

The Program

SAS offers customers the opportunity to pre-purchase blocks of education and take advantage of increased buying power. SAS Enterprise Training Agreements (ETA’s) are ideal for organisations that require ongoing SAS Education and prefer to budget and plan in advance. The investment in SAS Education purchased through an ETA is significantly increased and the additional buying power is locked in for twelve months.

ETAs can be used for the following SAS Education services:

  • Public courses
  • Group courses
  • Business Knowledge Series courses
  • SAS Self-Paced e-Learning products
  • Special offers
  • and selected training packages

The ETA investment structure is based on the number of ETA credits being purchased. The larger the credits pre-purchased, the larger the buying power. Once purchased, the training credits valued at $10 each, can be applied to any of the above training services.

For example: For a 3 day public course, the RRP is $2,700. Therefore you will require 270 credits for this course. For an e-learning lesson where the RRP is $450, the credits required would be 45. ETA credits are valid for 12 months from the date the signed agreement is received by SAS.


SAS Enterprise Training Agreements allow you to maximise your SAS Education investment through:

  • Certainty around your investment.
  • Increased buying power. The ETA offers gives you up to 22.5% additional buying power, allowing your organisation to either train additional team members for the same investment or reducing the total investment that is required for SAS training.
  • Reduces the amount of administration required by your organisation. Pay one invoice and take up training as and when required.
  • Offers ongoing reporting of the usage of the ETA to assist in planning SAS training.


The ETA is priced with an investment structure relating to the total number of ETA credits being purchased and must be taken up before the end of 12 months. The following table highlights the standard rates for Enterprise Training Agreements. Each credit is valued at $10.
