Financial assistance/Loans:
There are agencies that may pay your class fees.  Click on the “Financial assistance” tab on our website for a list of some of these agencies.

Arrange for your financial assistance before applying for the program. How you are going to pay for the course will be the first question asked to you when you register.

Express Training Services cannot currently accept federal financial assistance  (this would include Pell Grants). There are multiple other places where student loans can be arranged. Express Training is in the process of finding other student loan sources and they will be added as they are found. We do not recommend any loan source over another source. Keep checking the website to see if any loan sources have been added.

Most people who take this class will arrange for an in-house loan.  Here are different options to pay the $900 tuition fees:

Option 1:  Pay the entire $900 at once (our favorite).

Option 2:  Put 40% down, which is $360, and then make 3 weekly payments of $180.

Option 3:  Put 40% down, which is $360, and then make 4 weekly payments of $135.

Regardless of which option you choose, the loan must be repaid before you are allowed to graduate. It is very important to understand that these are “loans” and not grants. They must be repaid regardless of whether the program has been completed. Please understand your responsibilities when deciding to use a loan.
