As you will be aware, our Club Tournament Director Training Courses are now offered by the new charity English Bridge Education & Development. The charity has recently reviewed the courses with a view to making them even more successful in the future.
Guided by Mike Amos, a senior National Tournament Director, EBED are now working on a revision of the course material, which has been largely unchanged for many years and is in need of updating, both to take into account feedback from course participants and tutors, as well as changes in the bridge environment.
As part of EBED’s desire to make duplicate bridge more widely available, and in line with the charity’s objectives, these courses are now being offered to members of non-affiliated clubs.
The EBU and EBED have also carefully reviewed the costs for administering and running these courses, the effectiveness of the courses and the need to be able to provide these services sustainably into the future.
Following discussions between the EBU Board and the charity, it has been decided to revise the pricing structure for all Club Tournament Director Training Courses which start after 1st October 2015. You will have received an email to this effect in February, but we wanted to remind you of these forthcoming changes.
This will bring to an end the time-limited promotional buy-one-get-one-free offer for bookings made through affiliated clubs, and it will be replaced with a simplified pricing structure which includes discounts for EBU Members.
EBU Members will enjoy a discount of 12% from the standard pricing, and a ‘Full Course’ package will be available for those booking, and paying for, all four modules at the same venue at the same time. The ‘Full Course’ price will include a further £15 discount. Bookings may be made by clubs, or directly by members. EBED will receive the full cost of the course, with the discount being subsidised by the EBU.
The revised pricing will be as follows:
|Module||Old Prices||New Prices||EBU Members Price|
All courses are organised by English Bridge Education and Development, the national charity for the promotion and development of bridge.
