Actually, we think it is exceptional value. An enormous amount of specialist work has gone into the development of the course, structure and online adult learning resources. And that's before you take in the cost of hosting the face to face meeting and the ongoing work to maintain the excellent standard of the course.
Even with the above note we won't insult your intelligence by pretending the cost is negligble, but there are three contexts within which to consider the expense.
1. Most emergency trainees will be able to claim the cost of the course as a tax deduction. This immediately reduces the cost of the course by a margin of 30% to 48.5% for the trainee. We think this takes what we offer away from the realm of 'exceptional value' into downright cheap.
2. Obtaining the fellowship exam is worth a minimum of $100 000 a year to most emergency trainees for the rest of your working life. We think that puts the cost of preparing properly into true perspective.
3. Finding direction for your study preparation for the exam is really hard, and most ED trainees are really busy. Think about your hourly rate at work, and then ask yourself what the opportunity cost of 10 ineffectual hours of study a week for one month is. Convinced yet?
