Because our seminars and courses are extremely expensive to produce, a cancellation by a student within ten (10) days of the start of the Seminar would result in a non-refundable fee of $350.00.  A student cancelling three (3) days prior to the start of a seminar or short-course will mean a forfeiture of the entire registration fees. There is a $150 fee for transferring from one seminar to another. If you transfer from one seminar to another you will still owe $495 for the seminar to which you are transferring.

 

This also applies to our Level 2 and Level 3 courses, a cancellation by a student within ten (10) days of the start of the Course would result in a non-refundable fee of $1200.00.  A student cancelling three (3) days prior to the start of a seminar or short-course will mean a forfeiture of the entire registration fees. There is a $250 fee for transferring from one seminar to another. If you transfer from one seminar to another you will still owe $1900 (or $1995) for the course to which you are transferring.

 

If for any reason a class is canceled we will phone or e-mail you 48 hours prior to the start of the class. If a class is canceled at the last minute due to bad weather (this is very rare) we will reschedule the class. However, if a class is held and you decide not to attend because you believe the weather is bad then it will be treated as a no-show.

It is highly recommended that you register early, your credit card will not be charged until ten days in advance of the seminar or course. We must have a minimum students registered in order to form a course. If you are traveling from out of town to attend, please do not make travel arrangements until two weeks in advance of the course.
