How Long Does it Take?

Because of the CPBC requirements for instructional hours, it typically takes about 6 months to complete the regular program: two - 3-hour evening webinars per week plus a "virtual lab" session which is also online.

Can this be accelerated? An option is available to double the webinar sessions to four - 3-hour sessions per week which reduces the completion time to about 12 weeks plus the "virtual lab".

Other schedules are possible.


How much does it cost?

Tuition is $3990 which may be paid in 3 installments of $1330.

An option for a single initial tuition payment of $3740 provides a $250 discount.

Textbooks are an extra ($200 - $300 in total).

This fee structure is subject to review in 2023.
