New Course Pricing

The PNTC has benefited from many years of generous support from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, allowing us to offer courses at no cost to Colorado navigators. The funding support is ending June 30, 2018, but our services will continue.

In order to continue to offer these highly regarded courses, we will be instituting a fee scale.

As of March 1, 2018, we will be implementing a $25 nominal charge for all courses. After June 30, prices will increase. We will be announcing a fee scale in the coming months.

The Denver metro Level 1 planned for March 19-21 is being offered for a cost, which is $500 for in-state participants and $750 for out-of-state. Prices for Level 1 will increase to $750 for all participants after June 30 as we roll out our new pricing structure

Why should you or your employer pay for PNTC courses?

PNTC has been a national leader in developing and delivering courses for staff conducting navigation and care coordination across the US.

Our courses:

  • Are based on adult learning principles to be fun and interactive
  • Use the latest research and published materials on evidence-based methods and promising practices related to patient navigation and care coordination
  • Employ trainers and curriculum developers from a range of disciplines including patient navigation, social work, nursing, public health and medicine
  • Are led by PNTC trainers who work as patient navigators/care coordinators or supervise staff

What participants are saying

  • 82% of participants felt “very well” or “well” prepared to perform health navigator skills after completing just the Level 1: Patient Navigator Fundamentals course
  • Overall, 73% of course participants have made one or more practice changes after taking our courses

“I’ve been to many trainings, but never one as educational, fun and overall as GREAT as this one.” (Level 1)

“I have been to quite a few trainings of this nature and this was the most effective for me, as it was highly interactive and the trainers worked well as a team in order to supply skills needed to move forward as a PHN.” (Level 1)

We value your participation in our program and we are committed to continuing to offer high quality trainings.
