I-CAR Adjusts Pricing Effective Sept. 1

I-CAR has announced changes in its pricing structure that will be effective Sept. 1. Prices for U.S.-based Live Delivery training will increase, while prices for online training will decrease. The not-for-profit training organization is expanding its discount structure, offering additional discounts for online registrations.

The new full cost of a typical training class will move to $160 per point, however with the advance purchase of discount coupons, the cost of classroom training can be reduced to $112 per point. Gold Class Professionals businesses and Platinum Individual students will continue to receive further discounts, reducing the cost to $95 per point.

Students who bypass the coupon process and register and pay online using a major credit card will receive the largest discounts. The use of online registration reduces the cost to $108 per point. In keeping with the practice of providing the best price incentives for Gold Class Professionals businesses and Platinum Individual students, the online registration and payment rate will be $91 per point for these groups, making this the lowest-priced training option available.

In response to feedback from the industry, I-CAR will also be lowering its price for online training to $40 per one-quarter point. This will make the pricing of Online and Live Delivery more comparable.

“I-CAR training offers an exceptional value and we are committed to continuing to provide a high level of quality to the inter-industry that is both timely and relevant,” said Joyce Kasmer, director of marketing for I-CAR. “The industry is quickly responding to the availability of an online registration process and online training opportunities and we’re excited about being able to provide lower pricing in these areas.”

Prices for live training in Canada, New Zealand and Australia will not be affected. Visit www.i-car.com for more information.
