In 1997, the National Institute for Genealogical Studies started offering a basic genealogy classroom program at The University of Toronto. Two years later, we expanded to offer online courses. Since then courses have been offered to students worldwide and our programs has grown. The National Institute is the leader in genealogy education offering over 200 courses, 7 Country Specific Certificate Programs (Australia, Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, United States) and 3 Specialist Certificate Programs (Librarianship, Methodology and Professional Development). 2016 will bring new exciting courses and Certificate Programs.
We have been committed from the beginning to keep our courses and Certificate Programs affordable. We’ve done this by keeping our registration fees low and offering convenient payment plans.
When the US economy dropped a few years ago, we made the decision to help our students by freezing fees. For 8 years our registration fees have remained the same, despite rising operating costs.
As we start a new year, it’s time to adjust fees to keep in line with expenses. Registration fees will increase 10-15% effective February 1, 2016.
In order to prepare for this increase, we want to give you the opportunity to lock-in current fees for courses and packages. Here are a few things you can do today:
- Pre-register for the courses you’re planning on taking.
- Call us to see if we can convert your existing package or courses to a package that would be more economical.
- Is money tight? Ask about our Payment Plan options. We do NOT charge interest or service fees and you can spread payments over several months.
- Discount. For one week (to January 22), we are offering a 10% discount on all package registrations, or conversion to packages. Use coupon code 2016PKG10 at the registration checkout. For conversions, we will need to process the discount for you.
