Course fees are R 3650 VAT Incl per person and a normal class will be 20 learners. In extreme cases we might push for 25, ideally only 20. The above dates are fixed – should groups require any alternative dates we would require a minimum of 10 learners and then we shall facilitate the course on any date requested. Course fees must be paid at the time of the booking to grant the candidate access to the online material and short quiz that needs to be completed and passed before the commencement date of the course.

Garth Gordon Davis – The Facilitator will come to Cape Town on day one with our minibus. Learners in need of transportation can drive with him to St Helena Bay after class on day 1 at no charge. Maximum in the minibus allowed will be 15 excluding the driver. Those that wish to be returned to Cape Town after Class on Day two will carry an additional charge of R 2800 for the return trip only and the charge will be divided between the number of candidates making use of the return trip. Accommodation cost in St Helena Bay will be an additional charge. SSTG can recommend a couple of places when they confirm bookings.
