In the August issue of Coursebytes, it was announced that the TNCC 7th edition provider manual would be priced at $75.00 each. We received valuable feedback following this announcement and as a result, have increased our efforts to reduce costs. We are happy to announce that we have been able to lower the price to $68 per manual.
As we also previously announced, indirect fees will not change at this time. Therefore the total cost of the course, (indirect fee + book), has gone from $115 to $133, an increase of approximately 16%. (The last change in provider course fees was a $5 increase to the indirect fees, effective January 2011.)
The TNCC 7th edition instructor supplement will follow the same pricing format as the ENPC 4th edition, which is as follows:
Printed instructor supplement:
Instructors who are members - $50.00
Instructors who are nonmembers - $80.00
Downloadable instructor supplement:
Instructors who are members - $30.00
Instructors who are nonmembers - $60.00
Additional information and directions will continue to be provided in future editions of CourseBytes, as well as direct emails/letters to current TNCC 6th edition instructors. If you know of any TNCC instructor that did not receive this issue of CourseBytes, please advise them to email Coursebytes@ena.org so that they will stay informed.
