Please notify us 2 weeks before the start date if you must cancel or reschedule your training. P. O.'s and/or payments already received will be credited toward future classes. We will bill in full for cancellations received less than 10 business days before the class start day, or for non-attendance. Regretfully, courses are enrollment dependent and therefore are subject to rescheduling. Should this occur, we will notify you least 10 business days before we reschedule a class and we will prioritize your request for attendance in another class. Since circumstances may require us to reschedule classes; please consider this when arranging travel. We cannot be responsible for non-refundable or penalty airline tickets.
