Substitions, Transfers, Cancellations, Refunds

Substitutions, transfers, or cancellations can be made at any time prior to the start of a seminar by contacting our office at  201-871-0474  with the new and replaced person(s) contact information. 

Some quick rules: You can receive a full refund if you cancel 30 days or more from the start date of your scheduled seminar, but if you are cancelling your attendance between 14-29 days from the start of the seminar, you will receive a refund minus a 30% fee (we've already had to guarantee and pay the hotel for a specific head count, hence the fee). Your registration fee is non-refundable for cancellations made less than two weeks prior to the event; however, you may send a substitute in your place for no additional fee. Those who do not cancel and do not attend are responsible for the full registration fee. 

Cancellation fees can be waived at the Company's discretion if, instead of cancelling, you transfer your registration to another course or date. The waiver of fees is subject to head count at the event and the timing of your request. In other words, if we've already pre-paid the hotel and your request costs the Company money, then a cancellation fee will apply. We reserve the right to charge a return fee, especially in cases where you "change your mind" or drop out of a seminar, as we incur costs, including hotel fees and credit card fees to charge and refund your purchase, but if your request can be accommodated without it affecting costs, then no fee will be applied.. Either way, call our office at 201 871 0474 with your situation. 

If the Company cancels an event, you can receive a full refund OR a credit to be used for another of our training courses. For instance, we could simply transfer your registration to the same event held in a different city, or to the same event held in the same city but at a later time. Last, the Company is not responsible for any costs or penalties resulting from use of discount or airfares for any ongoing or cancelled events. 

If you have any questions, or just wish to discuss your registration, please give us a call a 201 871 0474
