4. Within 14 days from the start of the one-day in-class session, no refunds will be issued; registrants will forfeit all course fees. However, if a registrant supplies documented proof of personal or family emergency (i.e., doctor's note, death certificate, etc.) the administrator can re-register the individual for another existing class of the same title for the date and location of the registrant's choice. An administrative fee of $150.00 (plus GST) will apply for this service.

All course changes must be requested in writing to education@chbabc.org.

5. Failure to Submit Assignments by Cut-off Date

Registrants who fail to submit their assignments to their instructor by 5pm of the predetermined cut-off date (21 days prior to the one day in-class session) will not be permitted to attend the preselected in-class session.

Those registrants will receive an email instructing them to contact the course administrator if they wish to re-register in a future course within 5 days of the email notice. An administrative fee of $150.00 (plus GST) will be charged for the re-registration. Please note this option is limited to two (2) occurrences only, after which the student will be required to register to take the course over again at full price.

Registrants will have 12 months from the date of registration to complete the course work, final exam and any rewrites of any exam if necessary. Please note that no refund will be issued after this period. See items above and below for other deadline and refund information.

7. No-show for One-day In-class Session

No-shows for the one-day in-class sessions are non-refundable. However, if a registrant supplies documented proof of personal or family emergency (i.e., doctor's note, death certificate, etc.) the administrator can re-register the individual for the appropriate one-day in-class session for the date and location of the registrant's choice.

8. Change/Cancellation of Venue and/or Date

If an in-class session location and/or dates are changed or cancelled due to instructor availability, low enrollment or conflict with venue dates or availability, registrants will be given at least 14 days notice via email. A seat will automatically be reserved for the next available one-day in-class session in the same region. If necessary, registrants will have the option to contact the CHBA BC administrator and choose to be re-registered for a different date and location (for the same course) that better suits their schedule. If none of these options are satisfactory, a full refund, less a $75.00 (plus GST) administration fee, will be issued upon the receipt of a written request within 30 days of the notification email date. After that date, refunds will not be issued.
