Purdue Digital Education offers two payment options for students interested in enrolling in the noncredit option of Central Service Technical Training. You have the choice of paying (option 1) the full course fee of $420 (plus shipping and handling) at the time of registration, or for a $50 service fee, you can choose (option 2) the “two-step” installment plan described below.

Central Service Prepayment Plan
Step 1: Purchase course materials ONLY  
Click on the link below to make your first payment of $225 (plus shipping and handling). We will ship your course materials as soon as your payment is processed. You are welcome to begin studying the materials upon receipt; however, we will not accept any lessons until you are officially enrolled in the course (Step 2).

Step 2: Enroll in the course.
You have six months from the date you purchase your course materials to pay the second installment of $245 and officially enroll in the course. At that time, you will select a delivery option, online or correspondence. You will have one year from the date of your official enrollment (second payment) to complete the course and take the final exam. If your second payment is not received within the six month time frame, the offer expires and the materials are yours to keep. After the six month expiration, you must pay the $315 re-enrollment fee. All checks must be in U. S. funds and drawn on a U. S. bank for orders by mail.

You have 30 days after Step 1 to cancel this transaction. A partial refund of $125 will be issued if your course materials are returned unused and in excellent condition. No refunds will be made after 30 days.
