GTMR Fee Structure

GTMR Certification Enrollment

All learners interested in pursuing GTMR 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.

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$1,500 and $2,000.  All workshop series comply with the minimum 37 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.

Online Components


Fees for online components are directly payable on the Portland Institute website and are uniform across world regions:

  1. FFGT Mentoring: US$495

  2. Orientation to Family-Focused Grief Therapy (readings course): US$345

  3. FFGT Session Evaluation: US$345


Online components are open to all learners throughout the world.

The total cost for the GTMR Certification Program therefore ranges

between $3,200 and $4,000 USD -

well below the cost of many certification programs

in the health and mental health professions.
