If a public training course location is changed, or we cancel a course, we will notify all attendees three weeks beforehand and endeavor to reschedule with our attendees as needed.

How do we handle instructor led course cancellations?

Customers who cancel their registration within one week of the instructor led course or fail to show up for the course as committed will pay the complete purchase price of the course. If weather conditions cause us to cancel a training course, participants will be notified immediately by e-mail. Our customers will receive a full refund in this situation. An announcement will also be published within the course calendar inside the Learning Center.
