1.    a.   Classify each of the costs as variable or fixed.

b.   What would be the effect on the profit of the whole company, if the Training Centre was closed at the beginning of the new year?

Note :If the Training Centre is closed, one administrative staff will be retained to work in the Career Services department.

2.    Given the allocated costs at 10% of revenue, calculate the number of workshops that must be offered to break-even.

3.    Re-calculate #2 above, assuming Janice can re-negotiate the part-time trainers' cost to $1000 per workshop.

4.    With the increase in globalization and companies outsourcing many jobs, Janice thinks that, in addition to management training, the Training Centre should offer "second career" training.  Janice feels that this will add 100 more workshops with an average enrollment of 15 participants at a cost of $200 each.  The rate per participant is based on the fact that a non-profit organization has offered its facilities, free of charge, to run the workshops.

What effect will this have on the Training Centre profit?

Note: The trainers will be paid $1000 per workshop.  The only other additional cost will be manuals at $15 each.
