MHFA Australia does not employ the MHFA Instructors that it trains and accredits. Therefore, each MHFA Instructor has the autonomy and flexibility to set their own fees. We recommend modest fees on a sliding scale, however, Instructors need to be able to cover their costs. Some Instructors teach MHFA courses as part of their paid employment and thus have a salary whilst teaching, others offer MHFA courses as a private business.
A fee of $100 - $300 per person could be expected and a desirable course size is between 8 - 22 participants with one instructor. Having a local instructor will help limit the cost of their travel.
Fees can potentially be reduced, if any of the following items are provided for Instructors:
- A suitable training venue;
- Equipment (TV and DVD player, whiteboard, data projector and laptop).
