I want to be able to give people CCL classes for essentially cost of materials, but I don't know where to begin. It seems you need 40 hours of training, but what exactly does that entail?

Thanks!

You're going to be surprised at how costly "cost of materials" turns out to be.

If you plan on doing this without incorporating or buying insurance, I'd strongly advise against that. Those costs are part of the "cost of materials." Training ain't cheap for a reason.

What about going 100% digital?

I don't think IL allows that. You could probably get away by not giving any handouts but most students want them. 


Thank you

There is another option. Find a range that will cover the insurance costs. But I still agree with the idea of having personal liability insurance. It will cost you around $300-$500 annually. 


Thank you

If this is for training those that cannot afford the classes,I would think you could try to start some sort of foundation and accept donations to offset costs. I would recommend that you talk to an attorney about any liabilities and you maybe able to setup the foundation yourself.
