On-Site Seminars & Customized Courses

Customized training provides a mix of instructor led training with relevant case studies, workshops, and on-the-job applications that are specific to your organization. Customized training can be quoted on a fixed price (per student) or labor hour basis. ODC’s will include rental cost, meals, training materials, out-of-town instructor travel, and per diem. Copies of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), if requested, are $85 per copy.

A fifty percent (50%) deposit is due on execution of the training agreement.

Prices and deposit

Prices are per person, with a minimum of 15 persons. Additional prices per person are listed in the price list. Course materials are included in price. Centre will make every effort to deliver courses, but may be unable to accommodate particular desired dates for course delivery, because of other commitments. We require a 50% deposit due upon execution of a training agreement by Client, balance billed upon completion of the training. Other reasonable direct costs incurred for travel, meals plus G & A outside of the Washington, DC Metropolitan area shall be invoiced at cost.

Cancellations

Client will be billed for the full 15 students, even if fewer attend. Attendee substitutions are permitted at any time up to the start of the course. In the event an entire course session is cancelled with less than thirty (30) calendar days notice prior to course commencement, the client is liable for all out of pocket costs that Centre incurred in preparing to teach this course, including non-refundable expenses such as airfare. A postponement of a course is considered a cancellation.

If a client is using our training space, and a cancellation is received in less that 15 days, then you will be charged a cancellation fee of $500. This also applies rescheduling.

All cancellations must be received in writing. Centre shall use its best efforts to attempt to reschedule training cancelled for reasons beyond Client’s control.
