Cancellation Policy

In the event you are unable to come to class, we strongly encourage you to find another veterinary technician or assistant to take your place.  If you must cancel, we will attempt to fill your spot. If we are able to find a replacement, we will refund your class tuition minus 10% administration fees. Note, that it can be very difficult to fill last-minute openings. If we are unable to find a replacement, we will not be able to refund your tuition.

Typically, our courses fill to capacity.  If a program is cancelled due to insufficient enrollments or unforeseen circumstances, your registration will be fully refunded.  Other expenses, including cancellation or change charges assessed by airlines, hotels, travel agencies, or other organizations cannot be refunded, this is the responsibility of the registrant.  The registrant will be notified as soon as possible if the class will be canceled.  A minimum of 6 registrations will be necessary to hold class.

We recommend that you purchase trip insurance to avoid the expense of a class cancellation. Trip insurance policies can potentially reimburse you for tuition, canceled lodging deposits, unused airplane flights, and all other trip costs you may have already incurred.
