When can I start classes in the CCI Program?
Most classes in our CCI Program run on an ongoing basis, which is called continuous enrolment.
Continuous enrolment means that you can start classes right away – you don’t have to wait a few weeks or months for a new class to start on a specific date.
If there is space in the class you would like to join, you can start the next Monday.
However, some levels of our classes are very popular and fill up quickly.
If a specific class is full, this means there may be a waiting list for the class you would like to join.
How long are the classes in the CCI Program?
Students must register for a minimum of 4 weeks.
Most classes are 17 weeks. However, some classes may be shorter or longer, depending on the class.
How much does the CCI Program cost?
CCI-LEX offers great classes at very affordable rates.
To register for any course at CCI-LEX, there is a registration fee of $30, which covers the cost of creating a new student account for you.
This fee is a one-time fee, which means that you only pay it the first time you register as a student at CCI-LEX, and not every time you register for a new class.
The only exception to this is that a student who is not registered for 6 months or more will be required to pay the registration fee again.
When schools talk about fees, or the cost of a class, it is called tuition. Besides the one-time registration fee, our students also pay a fee, or tuition, for each class.
In the CCI Program, classes cost between $270 to $600 per 4 weeks, depending on the class.
Textbooks and Materials
The cost of the books and worksheets for a class vary between $15 and $130.
We are proud to offer discounts for long-term registrations in the CCI Program.
However, there is no government funding or financial assistance available for the CCI Program.
How many students are in a class in the CCI Program?
The maximum number of students in a CCI class is between 12 to 15 students, but many classes are smaller. Due to the COVID-19, the current maximum number is 6.
Who teaches the CCI Program?
CCI classes are taught by highly qualified, certified TESL teachers.
The teachers in our CCI Program all have University degrees, TESL training and TESL experience.
