We understand, life happens!

Suncrest is happy to offer refunds to registrants of both live and live-online trainings who cancel their registration up to 10 days in advance of the course or workshop start date, minus an administrative processing fee of $75. If canceled within 10 days before the event, no refund will be issued. In some cases, a credit for the same amount can be applied toward another future learning event, which expires within 1 year.

Attendee technology problems:  It is the responsibility of the webinar attendee to test their computer setup prior to the start of the webinar. If a technical failure at your home or workplace prevents access to the live webinar, you are not eligible for a refund. If the technical problem is due to our error, we will consider issuing a refund. Access to the recording of the event will be available for up to 60 days, though live attendance is required, with a post seminar evaluation to earn CE credits.

Attendee email issues:  Refunds will not be issued in cases where an attendee did not receive the webinar login instruction email due to issues like restricted emails, bounced emails, or any other system issues. It is the attendee’s responsibility to contact us if they don’t receive the required login information at least 24 hours prior to the start time of the webinar

No shows:  Registrants who do not attend or participate in the live seminar in-person or online will not be entitled to a refund. All registrants are given access to The Gottman Institute Level 2 training module and can review videos, print off assessments, and complete a self-study course and quizes to receive CE credit. For events that are recorded the video will be available a few weeks following the event and available for up to 60 days – live attendance of the complete program is required for CE credits where Suncrest Counseling is the provider.
