If you are unable to attend the course, you are responsible for contacting the Department of Public Safety at least 24 hours in advance; otherwise the full amount of tuition will be charged to the student/agency.

Workshop Cancellation Policy

If a workshop is cancelled due to lack of enrollment (or other reasons) you will be notified and given the options of either attending another class of the same monetary value OR obtaining a refund.

Inclement Weather Policy

If a workshop is cancelled due to an unexpected campus closure (i.e., weather conditions, etc.) all attempts will be made to reschedule the class. Only if the class cannot be rescheduled will a full refund then be issued. Please listen to the radio or check the college website in order to determine if the school has closed. Every effort will be made to inform you of a class cancellation due to inclement weather.
