2021 Business Certified Training Schedule

We have been in the process of updating our training courses, to convert them from the current version that consists of a Level 1 series of video lectures, followed by a two full day live Level 2 session where attendees drink from a firehose in the amount of new information and techniques that are presented, to a 10 week online/live mix.  

This new version will have sections broken out into a collection of pre-reading materials, followed by an hour or two of live instruction each week. There will be discussion boards where attendees can visit and comment with each other during the week, as well as ask questions.

The idea is that our training will more closely approximate an online college course, and will be supported by extra videos and source material for those who wish to dive even deeper into certain concepts.

We do not currently have a start date yet for 2021, but we anticipate the inaugural session to begin about mid-February. One of the really cool features of this setup, is our active members will be able to access it anytime as part of their membership.

If you have any questions, please contact Shawn Hyde at 469-412-9935 or email at
