You can also purchase a subscription for Gallup Access. A subscription gives you access to additional resources -- most notably, enhanced code management and team resources that can be helpful for you as a strengths coach.
The subscription is $1,500 per year. And as a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, when you purchase the subscription, you will receive 30 CliftonStrengths 34 codes (a value equal to that of a subscription).
