PFCCS Traditional Licensed Course

The live, director-led, two-day course is the traditional method for delivering the PFCCS course. Licensed sites arrange for qualified instructors to deliver the lectures and their related skill stations. Complete slide decks with speaker notes, administrative materials, and forms are provided to each site. Textbooks are shipped to the site before the course, allowing learners to prepare for the live activity. The site coordinator administers the pre- and posttests and provides the results to SCCM.
The Licensing Team can help sites that have not previously held a course find consultants who will lead the development of PFCCS on site. The goal is for individual sites to become self-sustaining in their delivery of the PFCCS program.

Shaped by SCCM’s commitment to meeting the needs of each individual customer, the PFCCS course pricing structure is designed to be both fair and flexible. 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 (USD) Single Course Pricing (USD) Per Learner Pricing (USD)
For-Profit Not applicable $1, 320 $65 per learner
Nonprofit Tier  3 More than $15,000 $830 $61 per learner
Nonprofit Tier 2 Between $5,000 and $15,000 $550 $42 per learner
Nonprofit Tier 1 Less than $5,000 $220 $21 per learner

Enter your country below to determine the correct pricing tier.
The Society offers two options: single-course licenses and unlimited annual course licenses. 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.
