Am I making out like a bandit? No.
I have learned that there are several upkeep fees associated with owning a small business as well as needing to set aside nearly 40% of all generated income for taxes.
The prices shown above are the best balance I could strike between keeping myself in business and making services accessible to the greater fire community. When you consider how much it costs to send just a single individual to a training class versus providing a beneficial training for (up to) 40 people these fees provide a considerable value, I hope you agree.
There are several scenarios that are not accounted for in the pricing above, (such as multiple days on site, instructing back-to-back courses, etc.) which can be discussed as each unique situation arises.
