Refund Policy:

Refund in full if training is canceled by instructor. Once student is registered we count you as attending and purchase and prepare materials for your spot. If a student changes their plan to attend, payment can be used for future training (any training location within 1 year of training date, or next scheduled training in the area within 18 months), or transferred to another person. There is a $50 transfer fee to move to another training or to transfer to another person (waived if training doesnt fill and taking the next available option) or training is canceled (no fees apply if training doesnt fill). NO refunds for no-shows, partial attendance, or last-minute cancellations. No certificate given if attendee is not present for 100% of the workshop. Transfers must be requested at least 2 weeks in advance from first date of training, as last minute cancellations will forfeit payment. (This is done to not risk cancelling the training for all other participants if the minimum is not met due to a last minute transfer). Non-refundable travel reservations should not be made until Heather has confirmed the class (usually by two weeks prior to the class start date).

I understand I should not make non-refundable travel arrangements unless I have received confirmation from CAPPA Faculty that the training is confirmed.

NOTE:Each student must be in attendance during the entirety of the training provided in order to receive a certificate of attendance for this Training Class.
