Courses & Registration
The Academy currently offers instructor led courses that will be scheduled throughout PA and NJ. Privately held courses can be arranged for groups of 30 or more.
Enrollment and Registration Process
In order to register for a course, a student will fill out the registration form and mail, fax, email it to our office or register online. At this time, payment options include cash, check, Master Card, Visa and American Express. A few days after receiving and processing the registration form, a confirmation letter will be sent to the student containing the date, time and location of the course. The student should keep this confirmation letter for their records.
Space may be limited. Registrations will be processed on a first come first serve basis and will not be processed without payment.
Refunds for cancellation are given (minus a $25 administrative fee). Requests for cancellation/refund must be submitted to the Academy, in writing, up to one week prior to the class. A 50% refund is given if written notification is given less than one week prior to the class. Refunds may take up to 30 days to process if payment was made with a check or cash. Credit card refunds will be credited to the card used to register for the class.
In the event of inclement weather or inadequate class enrollment, the Academy reserves the right to cancel a class. Earliest notification will be given and the student has the right to choose from another course of equal value or full refund.
Evidence of Satisfactory Course Completion
We want your opinion. Each student will be asked to fill our a survey at the end of the course. Feedback from students is imperative in order to provide the highest quality educational experience. All surveys are confidential.
Requirements for End-of-Course Survey/Evaluations Attendance Policies
The Academy adheres to the NMLS guidelines on monitoring attendance. The Academy requires attendance to be monitored throughout the course of the program. Participants must be present for 100% of any given course in order to receive credit. Each participant will be required to check in at the registration table and present a valid form of ID (current drivers license/state ID or current passport) prior to entering the classroom. Roll call will be taken at the beginning of the class and at the end of the class. Periodically, a quiz will be given at the end of the class to help verify attendance. At registration, students will be given a name badge and must wear the badge when entering and exiting the room.
