Refund Policy
You can cancel or reschedule your registration without penalty or charge provided you give notice of 10 business days (M-F) or more days before the start of my class.

If you request to cancel or reschedule your registration 10 Business Days (M-F) or less days before the class start you will be charged 100% the course fee and will not be entitled to a refund. You have one (1) opportunity to use our Make-Up policy to have those funds applied to a later class date.

You cannot change your class location ten (10) Business days (M-F) or less before the class start because Certified Staffing Solutions has shipped training materials and provisioned resources. Location changes requested prior to that timeframe are subject to availability and may incur an additional charge.

Should Certified Staffing Solutions need to cancel your class due to insufficient enrollment, or postpone it due to events beyond their control, Certified Staffing Solutions will notify you as soon as possible. In such cases, you may reschedule to a future class date at no additional charge or receive a refund for any money on account relating to that registration.

Travel arrangements and costs are the sole responsibility of the student. Certified Staffing Solutions suggests obtaining refundable reservations. Certified Staffing Solutions classes are confirmed approximately 14 days before the start of the class. We cannot guarantee class commitments before that window of time. Certified Staffing Solutions will not be responsible for any cancellation costs incurred, including but not limited to, airline/mass transit tickets, hotel reservations and so on.
