APT believes that there are millions of people doing their best to help those who need help, and our aim is to support those people by providing excellent training, and recognition of excellent practice.
The first principle of our pricing policy is dictated by that, in that we strive to keep our prices as low as possible commensurate with delivering excellence. We are aware that there are others who are charging a lot more for delivering a lot less, and we don't want to go along that path.
The second principle is dictated by transparency: nobody ever pays anything other than our published prices so you never have to wonder whether anybody else is paying less than you, they are not. Many of our customers buy substantial numbers of courses, and our prices are geared towards such 'bulk purchases'.
Prices are reviewed at the beginning of each year and any changes in prices take effect on the first day of the following May.

For all the above, you provide a good teaching room and any refreshments (coffee and tea, lunches if you want them) and of course the participants. We do the rest: course workbooks, registration, certification and APT-Accreditation and access to post-course resources where appropriate.
* Briefings and courses differ from one another in that whereas courses are interactive, small-group events with exercises, case presentations and discussions, briefings are more didactic, with the focus on presenting necessary information. Courses normally carry with them APT-accreditation in the subject concerned, briefings normally have certification and registration, but not normally APT-accreditation.
