Professional Course - Course Schedule & Cost

 

All prices listed on this page are based on the course being purchased via a Purchase Order or direct payment to NTPS with NTPS standard terms.

 ***Students coming to any of the Professional Courses (including Pre-TPS if attending prior to a professional course) should arrive 1-2 weeks prior to the course start dates to complete all of their administrative and personal requirements prior to the start of the course. There is no time in the course schedule to complete these tasks once the course has started. Each student will be required to personally check in to NTPS no later than three days prior to the course start date to confirm all administrative requirements have been completed.  Organizations should also allow for the students to stay for approximately a week after graduation to accomplish departure tasks as there is no time for these tasks during the final weeks of the course.***
