Phase 1 of the course is an 8 hour on-line training module developed by Michael Martin of the USCCA.

The on-line training module must be completed prior to attending the live training session.
The cost of phase 1 is $250 and includes the Instructor Toolkit and E-Learning Module. These are purchased directly from the USCCA. As registered students for the Instructor Certification Course, you will receive a substantial price reduction for these items. If you already have one or both of these, your price will be reduced or eliminated. Upon completion of the class you will be sent the Instructor Toolkit.

The cost of phase 2 is $347 and is paid directly to the classroom instructor. Class space is limited to 12 students per instructor.
