              Policies and Procedures

              Attendance Policy

              Participants are expected to attend all class sessions within their course.  However, we know that emergencies and unavoidable conflicts can arise, and our attendance policy allows one missed class in light of that.

              ATTENDANCE MODIFICATION SESSIONS: 

              Should a participant miss more than one class throughout the course, a live attendance modification will be required to receive full credit for the course.  These sessions require an additional charge and will be scheduled after the conclusion of live classes.

              Payment

              Payment is required prior to the start of the private cohort.  However, we recognize that every organization is different.  If you would like to begin as soon as possible, a purchase order number is required prior to the start of the course.

              Withdrawal

              If withdrawing a participant prior to the start of the course, your invoice will be adjusted to reflect the correct amount.

              If the participant’s withdrawal drops your number of participants below 8 total participants, no adjustments will be made to the invoice – the total amount for 8 participants is still owed.

              No refund will be issued for any withdrawals after the start of the course.

              Removal

              To maintain an open and safe learning environment, The Academies reserves the right to not accept and/or dis-enroll a student from courses for any reason.  In this case, no refunds will be issued.
