Self-Paced Latent Cause Experience Pricing

Tier 1:  Annual Facilitator/Personal License

$1,500.00 per year 


In order to use the Self-Paced Latent Cause Experience™️ at any particular site, one must first pay for an Annual Personal License at that site.  With this license, you may evaluate it with a small group prior to using in a larger context (see below) or simply use it for your own self-edification.  


Tier 2:  Site Annual Usage License:


After paying for the Annual Facilitator License at a particular site, each site for which the Self-Paced Latent Cause Experience™️ is to be used as a training aid must pay the following annual fee for its Site Usage License:


$100.00 per person at that site (employees plus contractors) 


For example:


Let's suppose you would like to use the Self Paced Latent Cause Experience™ at a site with 25 employees and contractors.  You would first have to pay $1,500.00 for the Annual Facilitator License, and then also pay $100.00 for each of the 25 employees and contractors, or $2,500.00.  In this example, your total cost for using the Self Paced Latent Cause Experience™ at your site would be $2,500.00 plus $1,500.00 = $4,000.00 per year.
