Registration Questions

When should I register?

Because our classes are small, we encourage you to register as soon as you’re available to commit in order to avoid being locked out of a course.  Simply click on the “register” link and it will walk you through the process and on your way to business success.

Each program is limited to only 10 participants to allow for a very personable and intimate setting, so no one has the the feeling of being lost in a large crowd.

What if I need to cancel?

Substitute registrations are welcome, provided you let us know in writing.  Cancellations in writing via e-mail or fax over 14 calendar days before the date of the class will be provided a full 100% refund, minus a $50.00 processing fee.  Cancellations in writing via e-mail or fax less than 14 calendar days before the date of the class will not be entitled to a cash refund but will be allowed to apply towards any future class within 180 days of the original class date you registered for.  Failure to contact us in writing once the class has begun will nullify any cancellation policy.

If you purchased your class on CourseHorse, then our Refund & Cancellation policy applies to your purchase. If you are entitled to a refund, or have any questions, please visit the CourseHorse site and contact their customer service team.

What do I get for attending?

On top of your own 80+ page handout material that you take with you, you also receive a certificate of attendance for your records at the end of the day.  We do provide a continental breakfast and lunch so you can avoid leaving the location, to save you additional time and stress finding a local eating option.  You also have the opportunity to bring your own personal business questions to hopefully get the answers you desperately need.

If I need special accommodations, what should I do?

All classes are handicap accessible, and should you need additional assistance, please notify us more than of 14 calendar days before the date of the class.  Any requests made with less than 14 calendar days will be accommodated to the best of our abilities.

What is the best attire for me to wear?

Wear comfortable clothing that is considered appropriate for your workplace.
