Refund/Credit Policy for CMHA-NL’s In-Class and Virtual Trainings

CMHA-NL strives to provide the best possible learning experience to training participants at all times. To ensure this, please note the below guidelines before you register for one of our courses.

o If you are not confident in your ability to acquire and execute the technological requirements described in online/virtual course details, please DO NOT proceed with registration. We cannot issue refunds for a participant's inability to download/utilize the Zoom platform, acquire/utilize a working camera/mic, etc.

o Neither refunds nor any sort of credit can be issued for virtual trainings after a participant's unique access code has been issued, which is typically within 1-2 business days of registering.

o It is the registrant's responsibility to check the time zone for virtual course offerings. We cannot provide refunds, credits or course transfers in instances where a registrant has failed to do so and later realizes the course is in a time zone that is inconvenient for them.

o Your seat is reserved in the session you have signed up for; we cannot switch you to other course dates once you have registered.

o Payment can be made in person at the CMHA-NL office, or by money order, cheque, or credit card. Money orders/cheques should be made out to CMHA-NL.

o Registration is not final until payment is received.

o Cancellations – Participants are required to provide at least 72 hours notice prior to the scheduled start time for the training. Cancellations after 72 hours notice without sufficient reason or no show, will result in a course material reprocessing charge of $50.00. Neither refunds nor any sort of credit will be issued in such instances.

o For virtual courses, participants who attempt to log in to the virtual classroom more than 10 minutes after the scheduled start time will not be authorized to join the session; neither refunds nor any sort of credit will be issued in such instances.

We are unable to make exceptions to our Refund/Credit Policy and the points above will be enforced as described. Should you choose to enroll in a future training session no credit or discount will apply to the registration rate for that session.

In the event of circumstances beyond our control require CMHA-NL to have to cancel a session, participants will be notified by email as soon as possible, at which time they may choose to receive a refund or apply the registration fee to a future course.

By proceeding with registration, you are indicating your acknowledgement and agreement to the Refund/Credit Policy outlined above. Thank you for your cooperation.

After you register...

Please ensure you have taken note of the dates and times (don't forget to check the time zone for virtual courses)

Once your registration has been processed you will receive a detailed receipt by email or through our automated system. If you do not get this conformation email within 1-2 business days, please check your junk/spam folder or contact our office at
