Shaped by SCCM’s commitment to meeting the needs of each individual customer, the FCCS: Obstetrics course pricing structure is designed to be both fair and flexible. The Society offers two options: single-course licenses and unlimited annual course licenses. Pricing options are tiered, based on a country's Gross Domestic Product at Purchasing Power Parity Per Capita​ as reported by the World Bank in its most current World Development Indicators database. This allows SCCM to accommodate ranges in needs and available financial resources.

Tier GDP (PPP) per capita
Nonprofit Tier 3 More than $15,000
Nonprofit Tier 2 Between $5,000 and $15,000
Nonprofit Tier 1 Less than $5,000

If you plan to hold four or more courses in one year, you should consider an unlimited license. The Society offers discounted course pricing for volume purchases—the more courses you purchase, the larger the discount.

Both licensing options consist of a course fee and per learner pricing. Licensed institutions will be assessed a fee for each learner, which includes a copy of the current edition of the textbook (print or eBook) and, upon successful completion of the course, a provider certificate.

Funding is available to provide financial support for organizations in developing or impoverished nations and underserved areas of the United States. Visit the donor-funding training web page to learn more about eligibility and to apply.
