This article covers how to join a Premium course. For advice on joining other types of courses, please see the following:
Why join a Premium course?
Premium courses are designed for professionals looking to advance their careers and learn with a smaller group of like-minded individuals. You can learn more about the difference between free and premium courses here.
Unlike our short courses with upgrades, you have to pay to access any part of a Premium course. None of the course content is available for free, and the course will not be included in an Unlimited membership.
How can I tell if this is a Premium course?
You can tell if the course your looking at is a Premium or paid upfront course because you won’t see the option to join for free, and the information banner at the top of the page will show the duration, recommended weekly study time and price:

What happens when I join a Premium course?
The process of paying for a paid upfront course is the same as what's shown in our article on Purchasing an upgrade or premium course.
Once you’ve paid, you’ll be taken to an order confirmation page containing a Go to course link:
