 Following are the results for 2008.

 Required:

 

1)a) Categorize each of costs as variable or fixed.

 

b.   What would be effect on profit of entire company, if Training Centre was closed at beginning of the New Year?

 

2) Given allocated costs at 10% of revenue, compute number of workshops which should be offered to break-even.

 

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

 

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

 

What effect will this have on Training Centre profit?
