Anyone may withdraw registration and will be refunded, less a $10.00 administration fee, up to the registration deadline of the program. Cancellations received after the registration deadline will not be refunded. Should a program be cancelled, registrants will be notified by email and refunds issued if necessary. It is therefore vital that you supply your email address where you can be reached during the week following the registration deadline. If you do not have an email address, please provide a telephone number where you can be reached during the day or evening the week following the registration deadline.

Please Note

The REGISTRATION DEADLINE is used as a means to make an accurate decision on whether the workshop in question should run or not. Payment is required for all registrants by the deadline in order for us to make our decision. However, if you are interested in a course for which the deadline has already gone by, please do not hesitate to call. If the course is running and we have not reached our maximum number of participants, then we would be more than happy to register you for the course.
