F.A.Q and Disclosures

Cancellation Policy

We understand that in life circumstances change and emergencies arise. If you are unable to attend your class, you may reschedule free of charge, however upon registration, all sales are final.  Because our seats fill up quickly, we must adhere to this policy and when students register for a class, that prevents another student from taking that seat.  You reserve the right to reschedule one time free of charge provided a 24-hour notice is given. In the event that you are late to class (more than 15 minutes) please give us a call so that we may transfer you to another class 1 time free of charge. If you are a no show and do not call, there will be a 50% deduction of all fees paid to reschedule.

Registration Policy

**A class reservation does not make your registration final. Registrations are final upon paying for class in advance ( at least 24 hours before class) or making prior arrangements with our registration department. High Quality CPR is one of the only training centers in the DMV that can accommodate private classes, however advance notice must be given in order for us to accommodate this request.
