MAKE-UP CE-CREDIT HOURS FOR LIVE CLASS OFFERINGS:
Required Courses:  Certain of our live presentation courses are required for various certification, licensure, and credentialing purposes.  Individuals registering for and attending these courses must comply completely with the attendance requirements or they may not obtain CE-credit. The opportunity to obtain partial credit or any credit at all when attendance requirements are not met is completely subject to the board, state regulations, or other credentialing body’s approval of such alternatives. When make-up credits are possible the alternatives available to participants in order of preference are;  a) re-register, re-pay for and re-attend in full the next available training,  or b) schedule a make-up session to obtain the CE-credit hours missed (rounding up to the nearest hour) at the hourly rate set by Program Services for individual training.

Non-requisite courses:  Where permitted by the CE sponsoring organization Program Services may offer to schedule a make-up session at the hourly rate set by Program Services for individual training or where permitted Program Services will provide a partial credit certificate.

Please note: The availability of individual training opportunities for both requisite and non-requisite is only at the trainer’s discretion.  Trainers do not have to agree to provide this individual instruction.  When trainers are not available for individual instruction the only option for participants will be a partial credit certificate.

It is obviously a better alternative for participants to adhere to attendance requirements to avoid make-up concerns.

Hurricane/Inclement Weather Cancellation Policy:
For obvious reasons classes will not be held if there is a hurricane watch or warning, a snow or ice event, or other inclement weather event issued within two days of the class scheduled.  There is so much uncertainty surrounding impending hurricanes that agencies are not able to guarantee they will remain open so we can utilize their training space.  We tend to reschedule the event as quickly as we can in cooperation with the space available at our training sites.  Most reschedules are within seven days after the warning is lifted unless there is significant damage.  If a rescheduled class results in the loss of enough registrants to hold the class the remaining registrants will be transferred to the next regularly scheduled class.  Service fees ($20) apply for registrants who request refunds in the event of a weather-related cancellation.
