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
