Cancellation policy

*****Cancellation and Registration Policy*****

Please understand that when registering for a limited access course, each registrant reserves a seat away from another potentially interested party.

We understand that everyone is busy and wearing multiple hats during these times, including our instructors.

Respectfully, however, if there is not an immediate and true emergency, we would ask that 24 hours advance notice is provided to our instructors if planning to miss a scheduled event.

This would allow those on a waitlist to be invited to participate in your absence, improves the interactive class experience, and also ensures that our instructors’ time is well spent.
