Summer 2018 TACHS Group Information

We offer 32 Hours of instruction to provide plenty of practice and focus heavily on timing and pacing in addition to instruction.

Many students report that the limited timing in each section of the TACHS exam is something they often struggle with.

Additionally, with family vacations taking place over the summer, this course ensures more than enough hours for comprehensive prep in case of some unavoidable absences. Students who can not attend a class will receive all homework and materials and can also attend the class at the other location.

Tuition for TACHS Summer Course is $599 (approx $18/hour). Students who enroll in our summer course will also receive an enrollment discount for the Fall TACHS Refresher course offered in October and November.

TACHS Fall Intensive Refresher Schedules posted at the bottom of this page. Registration Now Open. Please call or fill out the registration form below.

TACHS Summer Courses Includes:

  • 8 Weeks of Instruction (2 Classes Per Week)
  • 32 Hours of Instruction
  • 2 Full-Length Diagnostics  (Proctored and Timed)
  • All class and homework Materials included.
