Climbing Arborist Update

Start date: January 26th, 2015 at EITI in Mission.

EITI is still short the number of students required to launch the Climbing Arborist Apprenticeship program. The program was originally designed for an intake of 20 students per class. Our break-even point is a minimum intake of 14 students. Currently they have 10 students on the wait list. In light of this, in order to move forward, EITI would be required to raise the tuition to $2900.00 per student if this program is to run at the current intake level, an increase of $800.00 per student.

Note however that the tuition amount will be reduced on a pro-rated basis if additional students sign up prior to the course start date. For example, for every student added above 10, individual tuition costs will be reduced by approx. $210.00 downward toward the original $2100.00 level.

Unfortunately, this scenario only works if EITI receives commitment from all 10 currently on the wait list. Please consider the above and email Kerry Van Sickle at [email protected], to register for the program. Please send your replies by Dec 29th.
