In-House Education

The DHI In-House Education System enables companies to provide DHI’s renowned education sessions conveniently to their employees. Time away from home and out of the office will be reduced, which translates into even greater cost savings for your company. Companies can purchase the instructor and student materials for many DHI training classes. The official end-of-class exam is included, and students who pass the exam receive the same, full credit towards a diploma — or towards meeting the requirements necessary for taking the AHC, CDC or EHC exams — as students who pass DHI’s national class sessions. The links below will assist you with all aspects of planning and delivering a local DHI class.
