The daily training fee varies depending on the type of training, number of days and how many trainers are required. Generally the range for one trainer is $1,500- $2,000 per day plus travel and expenses. The Five-Day classroom training which requires a team of trainers and runs for five consecutive days has a different fee structure.

TEACCH receives many training requests nationally and internationally, so if it’s not possible for us to provide a contract training at your location then the training programs that we offer in North Carolina are another option. Visit our training page

Information about TEACCH Certification Program

If you are interested in the TEACCH Professional Certificate Program. There are two professional certification levels, and both are outlined here. This link also includes the criteria, benefits and even a commonly asked question section.

The Practitioner Level is the first certification and requires the completion of a TEACCH Five-Day Training. The next step after completing the Five-Day training is to complete the Advanced Topics Seminar. Both of these training are offered annually, and are listed here

For more information on how to become certified after completing these trainings, review the Certification Overview Criteria for each level here

If you have already completed both training within the past five years, then you will still need to refer to the criteria section to determine your next step.

Please review the site carefully, and contact if you have more specific questions related to the process.
