Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do I register for trainings?
A: Just go to the Trainings menu or page and drop down to the type of training you are interested in. Each training has a ‘REGISTER HERE’ link.
Q: What is the cancellation policy?
A: If you are unable to attend a training that you registered for, you are welcome to send a substitute. If you are unable to send a substitute, you may request a credit to be used for a future training. This credit must be used by the end of the calendar year as we will not be able to carry credits over to the following year. A refund may also be requested if the request is received within 14 business days prior to the training.
Q: I’m a member. What is my discount code?
A: In our new registration system, there is no longer a function for discount codes. Each registration page will have ticket options that match the different membership types. Please select the appropriate ticket type when you register. If you are unsure of your membership status, please call Linda Winston at 804-377-0335.
