Tuition and Refunds

We require half of the tuition payment for your course to reserve your placement on our schedule.  The remainder of the A&P and IA test prep cost is to be paid in full before beginning the course including financing through Survcredit. There is no refund given once the test prep program has begun.

Any unexcused absences or more than two absences in a single week may result in removal from the program with no refund given. Any off premise or home study during normal business hours without permission will be considered an absence and removal from the program with no refund.

Should you fail the initial written tests you will have two years to return to complete the retest and course.  Retesting will require payment for the additional test(s). 

A&P Test Prep Guarantee

Our goal is to have you pass your Written and Oral and Practical tests through proper preparation on the first attempt.  If you do not pass any of these tests, you may participate in the A&P Test Prep program at no charge for up to one year.

You are responsible for retesting fees for the written, oral or practical exams.

Why is our program so much less?

We work with you to pass your written tests the first time you take them.  Other A&P and IA schools may add the price of a second test automatically to the price of their tuition.  That cost is an additional $500, which if you pass your tests the first time will go right into their pocket as added profit.  We only charge you for the first test you take and will charge you only if you do not pass and have to take a second test. .  Our goal is for you to pass your test the first time.
