We appreciate the cost is substantial for an individual or not-for-profit organisation. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any discounts for the Instructor training course fee as we are a not-for-profit organisation and this is our main source of income, which helps keep us self-sustaining.
Occasionally, we are able to offer scholarships for trainee instructors due to generous donations, however, these are rarely available.
The topic of mental health awareness has been very well supported by the Australian Rotary organisation so you may like to consider approaching Rotary clubs in your region to discuss the possibility of them funding your training in exchange for some free courses. If you're interested in our Youth or teen program you could also approach local schools or youth community organisations.
