To register for any onsite training, please plan six weeks in advance. We require confirmation of the required equipment checklist and payment prior to scheduling and confirming a date for the onsite course. Confirmation is required two weeks before the start date of classes in the U.S. and three weeks before international classes to ensure delivery of materials. Once the date is firmly scheduled, our cancellation policy becomes effective.
