Workplace & Group Training Bookings

If you are interested in booking custom Mental Health First Aid training for your workplace or group, please read the following guidelines before making a booking request. 


How many people can be trained?

For custom Mental Health First Aid training bookings I require a group minimum of 10 participants. 


The Mental Health Commission of Canada, the governing body for Mental Health First Aid instructors does not allow courses to be taught with less than 8 participants. To allow flexibility for last-minute cancellations, participant illness on the day of training, etc. I require a group of 10 for custom bookings to ensure we can go ahead with training. 

What is the group booking rate?

Training fees are per person.  The group booking rate is $175 + HST per person. 

What if we have less than 10 participants?

If you are looking to have less than 10 participants trained, you are welcome to register multiple participants for any of my open public training sessions.  The regular registration rate is $200 + HST per person. 

The online shopping cart allows for you to purchase for multiple participants at once.

If you require a purchase order or invoice, that can be arranged, please make note of the billing and payment requirements. 

What are the training options?

Where can we have training?

In person and virtual training can be delivered anywhere in Canada.


Clients choosing in-person training options (basic or face-to-face programs) located outside the St. John's, NL metro region are responsible for airfare (where applicable), ground transportation costs, per diem expenses and hotel expenses for 1 or 2 nights depending on the length of course chosen. 

Training can be delivered on site in your workplace if adequate training space is available, or at a conference/meeting space of your choosing.  Client is responsible for the rental costs of this space. 


Booking terms and conditions

If you are ready to proceed with a booking, please complete a training request form indicating the number of participants to be trained and preferred date options.  

Please note that if you specifically want Alison Butler as your trainer, her teaching schedule is often booked 3-6 months in advance. Booking early is recommended.  


A signed training contract and a 50% booking deposit are required to confirm and finalize the requested training date(s). 

Given the nature of this training program, all participants must be confirmed a minimum of 14 days prior to training.  Final payment (based on confirmed participants) is due upon training delivery.
