Our goal is to make these courses as cost effective as we can but we still need to cover our operating costs.  Our current course fees are as follows:

  • Full commercial rate for those with full-time employment $150AUD per course.
  • Discounted rate for those in full or part time ministry: $50AUD per course. Some courses are less than this.

Further discounts can be offered for those who take more than one course at a time.  Please contact us at info@thrivingturtles.org to ask about this.  You must contact us BEFORE making any payments.
