Do I have to take Prime for Life® from a specific company?
No, you have the right to take Prime for Life® course from the company of your choice. Many individuals receive misinformation that they must take the course from one agency. You may take the course from anyone authorized to teach the Prime for Life® class (who have been trained by the Prevention Research Institute). You have the right to ask your court to take this class from the company that best fits your budget, location and schedule needs.
