Cancellation Policy

All classes offered have a maximum number of seats available for each class. This is due to instructor/student ratios and available equipment for each class. If you are registered for a class and need to cancel, please call and cancel as soon as possible. Failure to notify us of your cancellation  two (2) days prior to the class starting date may result in your course reservation fee being deposited. We reserve the right to cancel any course for which there is an insufficient number of course reservation fees submitted. All fees collected for a class that is cancelled will be sent back to the member. If the member has another class registration on record, we will forward this check to another class registration per your request.

 Attendance Requirements

Attendance at the first training session is mandatory. 100% attendance is required for all courses that issue Certificates or Qualifications. Please be on time! Late arrivals (and early departures) are disruptive to instructors and participants. Poor attendance / disruptive behavior will result in you being dropped from a particular training session.

 Reminder: Dress for class like you would dress for work. You will be denied entry into any class if you show up in short pants, tennis shoes or other clothing that you could not wear to work. Please observe all of our shop/class safety rules at all times.
