Training On-Demand

The Safety & Training Committee of the NYPGA also offers on-demand training (classes not previously scheduled) with 30 days advance notice required to schedule a class (CETP or Non-CETP), allowing us time to hire a suitable instructor.

The on-demand class must be open to outside marketer companies and their employees.

Requestor/host provides the venue and must guarantee and pay for a minimum of 10 attendees at the pre-determined class fee published on the NYPGA Safety & Training Schedule of classes at the time of the request.

  • 3-day class @ $180 per person / nonmarketer fee $360
  • 2-day class @ $130 per person / nonmarketer fee $260
  • 1-day class @ $100 per person / nonmarketer fee $200

The requestor/host will be reimbursed for the venue at a rate of $100-$200 per day. The actual rate will be determined based on negotiated contract pricing in the surrounding area at a local for-hire venue such as a hotel.

The requestor/host will be reimbursed $15 per person per day for food and beverage purchased by attendees.

Instructor fees will be the responsibility of the NYPGA.

Instructors must have a previously submitted and approved Request for Proposal (RFP) on file with the NYPGA. The instructors will be contracted by the NYPGA based on their normal rate schedule.

Newly scheduled classes will be announced on this website and NYPGA members will be notified by email.
