What if I don’t want to become a member. Can I still purchase the course separately?

We know that a one-time purchase may work better for some folks, and we recognize that not everyone is interested in being a part of our community.

So while we do believe that DPM Membership is the best way to use a combination of training and community to accelerate your professional growth, we still offer the course as a standalone offering for $950 USD.
