Reservation, Payment and Refund Policy

Reservation Policy

  • Your seat in the course is guaranteed by your payment. If you do not pay the course fee, your seat in the course may not be available for you. If you commit to a course, please show up, we have limited space available. Registration by phone is offered, but again your seat in the course is not guaranteed without payment for the course. All Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) are the responsibility of the participant. It is the responsibility of the participant to know what course they need to register for. Every effort will be made by Columbia Safety staff to ensure that this is correct.

Payment Policy

Rescheduling Policy

  • Life changes and we understand that. We are happy to reschedule your course to a more convenient date upon the participants request. If your request is over 48 hours form the start of your course there will be no charge.  If your request is within 48 hours from the start of your course there will be a $20 rescheduling fee.  This fee will also pertain to students who do not attend their scheduled course or fail to notify Columbia Safety LLC. that they will not be attending the course they were scheduled for.  You will have 5 days from the originally scheduled class to re-schedule, after 5-days all monies will be forfeited. 

Refund Policy

  • Refunds will not be issued. If a student is unable to attend a course, “course credit” will be issued to the student. This will allow the student to re-schedule the course for up to 60 days following the original course the student applied to. After 60 days, the course credit will expire and not be able to be used. Any course credit issued will only be valid for the student that was originally assigned to the course. The re-scheduling Policy will also be followed for any student that does not show for a scheduled course, or a student that fails to communicate a need for a re-schedule. Any textbooks that have been purchased and opened (breaking the plastic wrap barrier) will become non-refundable.  Any un-opened product can be returned with a 25{ae071e295ab25398e04be5549f07ec2e3b3e1e746ff185d193a50e9f0036e38d} restocking fee.
