Training Cancellation/Refund Policy
November 1, 2013

  • Refunds and transfers for training courses will not be allowed for any course with a fee under $ 25.00.
  • Per person cost fee of $ 25.00 or more may be reviewed for a refund or transfer to another course within the same calendar year of the training schedule. Transferring fees to future year’s courses will not be considered.
  • All requests must be made in writing by the person making the payment within 7 days of the completion of the course. The request should be directed to the Council Training Chair.
  • No requests will be honored to carry over from one calendar year to the next.
Approval for Additional Courses
A district training chair can add any basic course as needed without approval. All the normal processes must be followed.
If any other class (adult training - that is entered into the personal record with a course code) is being offered by a person/group not set up by the training chair then the following must be adhered to:
1.) The presenters must have completed and be current with either T3 - the Fundamentals of training or Trainers EDGE.
2.) The presenters and course must be approved by the district or council training chair.
3.) Current syllabi must be followed without addition/subtraction or alteration
4.) If there is a normal cost to the training the same fee must be charged for all attendees
5.) It should be opened to all interested parties, therefore a flyer should be approved and registration posted to the Doubleknot system
6.) Standardized handouts (where available) are to be used - without addition or subtraction
7.) The attendance roster is to be submitted in the proper format, with all necessary information, to both Joanne Miller and the council training chair (Lisa Scott) in a legible manner (excel spreadsheet works well).
8.) If there are special requirements to be met in order to be eligible to teach a course (climbing, etc.) then those certifications will be required.
9.) If a training is entered by other than the district/council training chair or council staff member the back-up "proof" needs to be submitted or the entry is subject to removal.
10.) If there are any questions about any of the above they should be addressed to the council training chair.
If the above conditions are not met prior to holding a training and an attendance report is turned in it will NOT be entered into the training records.
