  • Refunds are not available. In the event of voluntary withdrawal from the course or failure to meet course requirements, a non-refundable $75 administrative fee and credit toward a future course will be applied as follows:
    > If a participant is unable to complete the prerequisites, a credit will be issued for future course enrollment MINUS the $75 administrative fee.
    > If a participant is unable to perform the required skills or pass the written exams, a 75% credit for future course enrollment will be issued.
  • Injuries and illnesses may be accommodated, with a valid letter from your doctor. Participants will receive a credit voucher that can be used for future course enrollment.
  • “Act of God” covers cancellation for any reason, which may include and is not limited to weather-related safety; COVID or other public health concern; necessary schedule changes.
