  • No refund or credit will be provided for no-shows. The registration amount paid will be used for the cost of printing and preparation.
  • A twenty-four (24) hour cancellation notice is required to receive a credit or transfer to another training event. No refund will be provided, however a credit will be issued. Credits are valid for one calendar year. 
  • A minimum of 5 spaces must be filled before a training event will be conducted. If this number is not reached, PfCF reserves the right to cancel the event.
