Below are the requirements for taking these online seminars. 

 

You must log in with video on, as this is how attendance will be taken. It is recommended that you log in to class using a computer (laptop or desktop is fine); if you use a mobile device you will not be able to share your screen and the instructor will not be able to answer your questions.

 

Students MUST have access to:

•                 Broadband internet

Refund requests must be received at least five (5) business days (weekdays) prior to the day of the seminar. Thereafter, NO refunds will be granted. Non-attendance of class(es) does not exclude the student from the rules of the policy.
