Terms and Conditions

Onsite Workshops: Training may be booked at your location with 30 days advance registration for a minimum of 10 staff members and a per diem of $.545/mile for distances more than 50 miles from the Snellville 30039 zip code.

Cancellations/Substitutions: Registration fees are non-refundable, however, they may be transferred with prior approval (a minimum of two days prior to the training date). The advance registration deadline is fourteen business days prior to the training. Group discounts apply to pre-registered attendees only. Cancellations and substitutions must be made in writing (email acceptable). Registration may be transferred to a later session date once.

Withdrawal: Child development instructors may choose to withdraw a student if the student does not meet the course requirements. Students are urged to consult with their instructor or an advisor before making schedule changes. A student is not eligible for any refund  if (1) the student fails to formally withdraw in writing; (2) the student is suspended for disciplinary reasons; (3) the student resigns when a disciplinary action or honor code violation is suspected (including plagiarism). A student may withdraw her/himself at any time prior to the “last day to withdraw” which is 10 business days prior to the beginning of the session. 

Attendance: Students are expected to arrive on time for classes and to attend each class for the full class period. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time of the training. Participants who arrive later than the first 10 minutes of the training may not be permitted to enter and will not receive credit for the course. To allow for the best training experience for everyone, children and cell phones are not permitted. Calls may be made during scheduled breaks. Participants must be present during direct instruction periods in order to receive credit for the course, therefore you must return in a timely manner from all breaks. Two incidences of “tardiness” will equal one absence in the CDA or DT course. Tardiness is defined as not arriving at the designated start time or returning late from a scheduled class break and early departures. Students with two absences or more will receive a failing grade (F) and be required to retake the CDA course. Cameras must be on to determine attendance in virtual classes.

Tax Deduction: The expenses incurred for ongoing professional development are tax deductible, when completed to maintain or improve
