$2.50 / student / year
(unlimited certificates for that year)
Example: IADLEST certified online courses taken from a provider’s LMS by 10 students in a particular month will cost the provider $25.00. This fee supports the generation of student accounts, IADLEST certificates, student surveys and annual hosting of the record.If in the next month 20 students take a different IADLEST certified course from the same provider where 10 of the students had previously taken an IADLEST certified course. The provider’s cost will again be only $25.00. The charge will be for the 10 new students who had not been previously reported at least once within the year.
Classroom / In-Person course
$2.50 + ($0.25 x training hours) / student / course
(maximum charge is $15.00 / student / course)
Example: A 10 hour IADLEST certified classroom course which has 10 students completing the course will cost the provider $5.00/student ($2.50 + $0.25 x 10 hours). The fee for the provider would be $50.00 to add the 10 student records to the NCP framework on FirstFoward®. This fee supports the generation of student accounts, IADLEST certificates, student surveys and annual hosting of the record. If one of the same students were to retake the same course or take another 10 hour IADLEST certified course from the provider it would cost them an additional $5.00 for the student to provide the information and obtain the official IADLEST Certificate of Completion.
