A non-refundable $250 hold fee is due at the time of application submission. $250 fee applies toward the balance owed on program, and acceptance into the program will be offered within 72 hours of application submission.
Applications will stay open until the program is full. To ensure adequate attention, space, and resources for all attendees, each session is designed to have a maximum student headcount.
It is suggested that applicants have 1-3 years of steady practice before entering a training program. Applicants should also understand that additional time and resources may be expected of them outside of the 200 contact hours of the program. Arrangements should be made to limit outside responsibilities and distractions during active training periods.
An application process helps ensure programming will suit the needs of trainees. Until maximum headcount is met, all applications that demonstrate a willingness to successfully complete the advertised program will be honored and accepted.
All application fees are non-refundable. Refunds may be available for extreme and unforeseen life circumstances up to 60 days before the day of orientation, less any credit processing and return fees. We thank you for respecting and adhering to this policy.
There are currently are no restrictions that prevent us from gathering with our max headcount in our selected training space in 2024, but we will continue to monitor and take all measures to keep participants and staff safe. Any newly mandated state/federal industry guidelines will be strictly adhered to, including the transfer to a full or partial online curriculum, if needed. If you would like to participate in the course virtually even if the course moves forward in person, accommodations will be made for you.
Graduation from our program requires attendance at all sessions. Any planned absences must be approved in advance by a program director. To graduate, both planned and any unexpected excused absences (illness, family emergencies, etc.) will need to be made up via private session with a lead trainer. Private session fees are not included in the program tuition cost.
Punctuality is expected. Tardiness may result in required make-up sessions.
REQUISITES FOR GRADUATION
