Course Cost: For 2022 we have reduced the course cost significantly to €495 which you will make back within two weeks of work. During the first three weeks working you will be on a probationary period and will receive the base rate only. See payment scheme for details.
Early Course: When issuing work assignments, we aim to have all bookings staffed 4 weeks prior to their start date. Therefore successful students on earlier academy courses will be assigned to start working earlier in the season than students of later courses.
