You misunderstood my second comment, trying to tie it into the first comment and put words in my mouth. whatever.
Not my intent ... in fact, a pet peeve of mine, so sorry.
The fact is that there really can't be a "groupon" for Fundies ... in order for the class to be effective, it has to be small, focused, and rather intense. If they compromised on any of that, it would lose the very qualities that make people want to take it. I can't see Fundies being done in any class larger than six ... and I think it's probably more effective with four. The class is typically long days ... 12 hours isn't uncommon. It's not a "mimick the instructor and call it good" kind of skills evaluation ... you really have to show some level of proficiency in order to pass, and that takes time and effort.
Add to that there aren't many instructors, and so they typically have to travel. That's expensive, and has to be factored into the cost of the class.
Frankly, for what you get, I don't think the class is all that expensive ... far less so than some other classes I've taken.
