Self-study course cost? $200

AND, as a shortcut to success… if you choose to later acquire our prevention consulting practice “kit” containing all my consulting practice tools, we will apply the self-study course cost to reduce the cost of you acquiring that ‘kit’. This allows you to launch your practice by simply copying all of my practice tools and materials. The kit includes all versions of my workplace MSD School powerpoints, lecture scripts, employee handouts on pdf, ergonomics risk assessment tools, all marketing materials and guidelines and use of the web site to allow your client workplaces to preview your (our) prevention program. Using my program allows you to point out its outcomes, extremely valuable in client marketing. Kit normally sells for $600. But now, minus the cost of the self-study course.
