AAGT Fee Structure
AAGT Specialized Certification Enrollment
All learners interested in pursuing AAGT Specialized Certification pay a one-time Enrollment Fee of US$100 on the Portland Institute website and enter their profile of relevant professional background information. The Institute will then open a personalized Progress Tracker to monitor their progress toward completion of certification requirements.
AAGT Onsite Components
The cost of onsite components is established with PI's various partner organizations around the world, and varies somewhat in pricing depending on local economic conditions, costs of facilities etc. However, for the coverage of all the required onsite components, which may be delivered over two to three blocks of multi-day workshops, the fees commonly range between US$1,250 and $1,700. All workshop series comply with the minimum 31.5 hours of onsite training established by PI, with some settings providing more than this amount based on the specific curriculum offered.
Onsite learning opportunities in each major world region (e.g. North America, South America, Europe and Asia) are announced on the Portland Institute website and are continually being updated as new training programs and partner organizations are added.
AAGT Online Components
Fees for online components are directly payable on the Portland Institute website and are uniform across world regions:
AAGT Mentoring: US$495
Orientation to Art-Assisted Grief Therapy (readings course): US$345
AAGT Session Evaluation: US$345
Online components are open to all learners throughout the world.
The total cost for the Specialized Certification Program
in Art-Assisted Grief Therapy
therefore ranges between $2,500 and $3,000 USD -
well below the cost of many certification programs
in the health and mental health professions.
