In-Person Courses

DHI offers several ways to take our in-person classes in your backyard, through Local education and In-House education. In addition to our traditional classes available below, we’ve launched new Microlearning classes. These are convenient two- to four-hour classes with CEP points for a great value, delivered via local or in-house education.

In-House Education

DHI In-House education enables companies to provide DHI classes 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 the DHI training classes noted below.

Local Education

Local education enables chapters and individuals to provide DHI classes conveniently and locally. Chapters or individuals who have enough participants to host locally can purchase the instructor and student materials for the DHI training classes noted below.

Become an Instructor

We are proud to say that most DHI instructors are our volunteers. Our instructors are from the industry and have dedicated their lives to the industry, as well as much of their own personal time to support others. As our students will tell you, our instructors care and make our classes and schools unique and life changing. The mentorship, technical wisdom and enjoyment from meeting other students from around the world is a special experience. If you’d like to become an instructor and give back to the industry, we welcome your application.
