Attendance is mandatory for the entire length of the course. Unfortunately, we cannot grant certification to anyone leaving the course early. Please make travel and work arrangements accordingly.

When I started using the extensive knowledge I had learned from Dave, I realized how much he gives to those he is training. He adds even more than what I would think is required.

I was fortunate because I had one-on-one time with Dave coaching through my own Birkman results. It gave me a whole new insight. It is absolutely worth enrolling.
