CERES is committed to providing educational programs as cost effectively as possible, and we use the revenue from our programs to support CERES’ work and aims.

While workshops and courses are priced according to a range of factors including the length of the program, course materials and trainer fees, a key part of our pricing policy includes a resolute commitment to our members and concession eligible learners.

The prices listed on each of the individual workshop or course pages are the full price of the program.
