Fees: 1 course & exam = $140 (CFSC or CRFSC or Hunter Ed.) 2 courses & exams = $210 (either CFSC & CRFSC OR CFSC & Hunter Education - also known as the "One Stop" Course) If you take a 3rd course, within 6 months of the first 2, the price for the 3rd course is reduced to $70 (including exam). That gets you all 3 courses & exams (requires 2 different weekends) for $280. If this interests you, we recomend doing the CFSC+CRFSC courses on the first weekend and the Hunter Education course on the Sunday of a later weekend, within 6 months.
