Cost of the training will be determined in relation to the needs of your company. A $50 base rate applies to trainings held on location in addition to a per hour rate. On location trainings also require the company to provide seating arrangements, TV, and a DVD player. When First Aid Training is required an additional “per student” rate will apply.
