There is a Reading List for the Diploma which you will need to read and absorb before attending Part 2. It is a good idea to start this while you work your way through Part 1 to help you absorb the information. (Before you attend Part 2, you will also be sent the Diploma Manual to read.)
You are also encouraged to practice the various new skills you are learning on Part 1 as often as possible so you can derive the most benefit from Part 2.
The cost of Part 1 of the Human Givens Diploma is the total price paid for taking the above 16 diploma-linked courses (8 online and 8 attended).
The final amount you pay, however, will depend on how you work through the course and whether you take advantage of our special offers – the maximum amount you will pay for the courses on Part 1 is £3,192.
