Q. Why are some classes cheaper or more expensive than others?

A. Tuition cost is kept to a minimum, depending on the cost of the venue to our company. Our policy is that we want to teach a lot of students at a low price, rather than a few at a high price. We have the lowest price that can be tolerated for a business. If you’re shopping for an instructor, please consider that we do this full time for a living. We are dedicated to you. We have 9,000 students under our belts in the last 3 1/2 years alone! Watch the fine print ..some of our fellow instructors charge as much as $20-25 for a fingerprint card and some $10-15 for a passport photo. It’s important that the training you receive is accomplished by an instructor who know what they’re talking about, and has had the classroom experience to provide an engaging presentation, without pressure or intimidation.
