TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Please read the following terms and conditions including our cancellation policy before registering for your course.
Our goal at Eastman Safety Training Centre is to make your course registration experience easy, efficient and equitable, so you can get your training as quickly as possible. The following policies are designed to ensure your satisfaction and understanding of our registration process. If you have any questions about the information below, please contact us prior to registering.
Before completing your registration, carefully review the details for the course you have selected. Please make sure that you have selected the course you require on the correct date. Mistakes are not easily rectified after the sale has been confirmed.
If you are receiving a course confirmation by email, it is possible that the confirmation email may be lost or filtered by an anti-spam program. If you have not received your confirmation email within 24 hours of your registration, it is your responsibility to contact us to confirm your arrangements.
Refunds are not issued for non-attendance (no-shows).
Eastman Safety Training Centre Inc. offers a variety of payment options for your convenience. We accept Debit, Credit Card, PayPal, E-Transfer & Cash (if paying in person is your only option, you MUST contact our centre to arrange for someone to meet you at the centre as we do not have full time staff). If you choose our Register & Pay Online option (Register), your spot will be secured immediately. If you choose Register & Pay by an Alternative Method (RSVP), and you do not make your payment in full by the due date on your invoice, your registration will be removed and you will need to resubmit again providing there is still space for you to register (courses are listed as "FULL" once at capacity).
NSF Cheques (Cheques are only accepted from businesses - no personal cheques allowed)
There is a $50 admin fee for all NSF/returned cheques.
General Course Policy
Eastman Safety Training Centre reserves the right to dismiss any student from a class for disruptive or inappropriate behavior. Students who are disruptive or exhibit inappropriate behavior will be removed from class and no refund or credit will be issued.
All courses have maximum registration limitations based on regulatory requirements and space. All registrations are taken based on a first registered & paid, first served basis.
No Pressure Policy:
At Eastman Safety Training Centre, we have a “no pressure” policy in which candidates are eligible to re-take any first aid course at no extra cost if they do not successfully complete the course the first time. We understand that people learn at different speeds and in a variety of different ways. We reserve the right to refuse multiple attempts should we feel that the returning student is deliberately re-taking the course with malicious intents or are taking advantage of the No-Pressure Policy. This policy does not apply to any other classes unless otherwise specified.
Once an individual has registered for a course, a spot is reserved for that individual. Class sizes are very limited so we therefore employ a STRICT cancellation policy regarding refund or transfer of course fees. Eastman Safety Training Centre requires a minimum of 7 days notice if you will not be attending a scheduled course for which you are registered. If sufficient advance notice is provided, ESTC will refund 100% of the course fee paid. If notice is not provided 7 days in advance no refunds will be issued.
Participants wishing to reschedule have the option to apply their fee as a credit against a subsequent ESTC training course within 3 months of the date of the canceled course. We will do our best to accommodate you in an upcoming class as soon as possible.
UPDATE April 6th, 2016: ** Due to increased demand and limited class sizes, the CFSC, Hunter Education and CRFSC require a minimum of 14 days notice should you require a cancellation or date transfer. No refunds will be given if attempting to withdraw or transfer from the course within 14 days of the start of the course.**
Some courses have a required minimum number of participants. If ESTC must reschedule a course for this or any other reason, ESTC will reschedule the course as soon as possible but participants will be given the option for a refund or no-penalty course transfer.
In any case where books and/or materials are provided in advance; as soon the materials have been received by the student there is no refund.
Refunds and course transfers will not be considered on the day of any course or for non-attendance (no-show) to a course.
The financial obligations of our programs are fixed for the year and the withdrawal of a participant does not lessen operating expenses.
ALWAYS double check your start time & date of class, as reminders are not always sent out after registration. You will not receive a refund if you miss or forget about your class. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR PROGRAM, PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY!
Cancelled or Postponed Events
Occasionally, courses are cancelled or postponed due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather conditions or situations affecting the instructor or low-enrollment. We will strive to send out notification of any changes at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled start of the course, however, sometimes poor weather conditions or severe illness only present shortly before a course and we will ensure to send out notification of cancellations under these circumstances no less than 2 hours before the course start. When this occurs, Eastman Safety Training Centre will make every effort to ensure that you receive a prompt refund or you have the option of attending a make-up class. Eastman Safety Training Centre assumes no liability for cancellation of courses for any reason. Any ancillary costs related to the student taking a class (including but not limited to: airfare, travel, hotel, per-diem, mileage, lost employee wages or salary) are the responsibility of the student and/or the employer. If a class is cancelled, Eastman Safety Training Centre’s liability is limited to the amount of the registration fee ONLY. It is suggested that, prior to making any travel reservations, you contact us to confirm if a class has sufficient enrollment or will be running as scheduled if severe weather is to be expected. If a course is cancelled, please contact us for information on receiving a refund. Please make sure to include/provide your transaction confirmation number so we can expedite your refund if applicable.
