$65.00 - indeed - quite interesting, Johnathan & YepYep at $350.00. I've seen prices as high as $500.00 listed.
When we, my daughter and I got our RPals - we simply challenged the exam - $25.00 seems to me was the cost.
I understand that is not allowed now because the people running the courses complained that 'some' people were
running challenges only & some course people were losing out so the Gvt. changed the rules. Be that as it may.

Yeah.... I remember the price was similar about one two years ago the first time I think about getting the license... And my workmate friend who got his several years ago was 300 something... And when I looking for a course this time, I found some are asking for 400... The cheapest one I remember was 320 something and I just picked the one has most good reviews in Google and not too far away...

I got mine at a local conservation organization - set your own price! On enquiry, I was told the average donation was $75, so I paid $85x2 (PAL and RPAL) and everyone was happy. I would think there would be organizations like that in any large community.

Personally, though, I think the best way to go is the 2-for-1 (weekend) deals one of my friends took. The local firing range here sponsors them regularly for $265. Not as cheap, but there's no six days (including both levels) of sitting in a stuffy, overcrowded classroom, dealing with super-anal instructors who have all the time in the world to demonstrate "the right way" (read "THEIR way") and then dock you for every little insignificant variation from that way.

With the weekender, you walk in Saturday morning; walk out with a PAL Saturday late afternoon; Return Sunday morning, and walk out mid Sunday afternoon with an RPAL. Saturday's a long day, but oh, so much better than six days.

Mine was one evening, for both, about 2 hours total. About 4 years ago, the rules were changed to where challenging the exam was not
an option.

That's my courses arrangement too. A very long Saturday then a shorter but still whole Sunday...

And looks I don't see the week day / evening etc courses bow....
