Option 1: Online Live and Exclusive course:
Live and interactive online course, delivered via Zoom or Teams* exclusively for your team or organisation.
Price: $1,750* for a group of up to 15 people (price includes a workbook for every delegate, posted to one address). Extra delegates $150 per person.
*We standardly deliver courses via Zoom (which is recommended). If you would prefer to use Microsoft Teams, there is an additional charge of $160 CAD per day.
Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':
If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.
This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee each time you run it or your chosen modules (50% of the 'Online Live and Exclusive' fee, regardless of whether the course is held face-to-face or online).
