Payment Plan

Our payment plans require a 50% down payment, which can be made with a credit/debit card, personal check or cash. A valid credit or debit card must be on file in order to be on the payment plan. All cards will be charged a $1.00 trial amount to validate the card.  Once the course begins, five subsequent weekly payments will be automatically deducted from your credit or debit card until the course is paid in full. Your registration for the 75 Hour course is valid for six months, and we will charge your card weekly in the event that you cannot continue the live portion of the course. A $10 fee will apply if a payment is declined the first time. If the card is declined twice, the entire balance will be due before a person can return to the class.

There is no extra charge or interest to take advantage of the payment plans.

We do not offer payment plans for 15 Hour courses or Internet courses.

  • A student registers for the 15 Hour course and does not pass the 75 Hour course after three attempts.
  • A student is disruptive, disrespectful to any staff member, or attends class under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If a student is dismissed for one of the reasons listed, he/she will receive a full refund and will not be admitted back into the classroom.
