HOW MUCH DOES THE COURSE COST?
Each module is $50. The certificate and the final exam are $25.00, for a total of $625.00. The modules can be purchased on a pay-as-you-go basis or you may make a single one-time payment of $600 for all 12, plus a coordinating binder and dividers. In addition, there are two study guides in binder form, available through Sandcastles for $35 each.
I’VE SEEN SIMILAR COURSES COSTING MORE…
The Sandcastles course can be offered for this cost simply because we’ve decided to take less of a profit.
HOW IS THE COURSE ADMINISTERED?
Once we receive your registration, we will mail you the course materials you have ordered. You will then study from the two resources and complete the assignment, which you will save and email to us for evaluation, consisting of a discussion of its strong points, suggestions for further skill development, and answers to any questions you might have. At that point, you will also order and begin to work on the next module.
Each module is completely self-contained, so you needn’t wait for the evaluation of one to begin another.
Once you have completed the assignments for all 12 modules, you may order and complete your final exam. If you have ordered the complete course, the exam will be automatically sent to you as soon as we receive your final assignment.
WILL THE COURSE GIVE ME RECOGNIZED PROFESSIONAL CREDENTIALS?
At this time there is no governing body regulating professional organizing credentials. However, a certificate will make you more professional in the eyes of who matters most — your clients.
IS THE COURSE TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
Yes. However, since Sandcastles is not a “school” you will not claim it as education on your income tax forms. We will issue a tax receipt that you can claim as a business expense, in the same way you would claim professional seminars, etc.
WHAT ARE THE TIME LIMITS ON THE COURSE?
You alone decide how long it will take. The course is designed in self-contained modules that will fit perfectly into your family and work schedule.
