Late Registration and Walk-in
Payments will not be accepted at the door.  You may be asked to wait to be certain there is space available and then you will register as a walk-in.  You will be invoiced for the training and a $3 walk-in fee will be included.  Your training certificate will be mailed after receipt of payment.


Refunds in the form of coupons for future trainings are granted for cancellations made at least 3 business days prior to the training date.  Please note, we are not able to refund fees for CPR and First Aid classes even with 3 days notice as capacity is limited and demand is high.  If you wish to cancel 3 days prior to a training, please call 343-2344 extension 115.  If there are extenuating circumstances to be considered, you may contact the Executive Director at extension 119.
