$49.99 - Cost for Beta Rosters is 50% off the full price of the Horizon Training Program, normally $99.99. The Beta program is provided at a reduced cost due to the nature of a Beta program in that parameters may evolve as the program progresses and the requirements may change along the way -- the programming is not set in stone.
