Cancellation and Refund Policy

Thank you for choosing Savage Training Group. We know you have a busy schedule and plans change so you may need to cancel a course registration. Below you will find a full explanation of our cancellation policy. If you need to cancel a registration and are within the cancellation window as described below, please contact us so we can work with you to find a solution.

Please also see our Terms of Use which covers your requirement to abide by this Cancellation Policy.

Registration Cancellations / Refunds and Credits

Savage Training Group relies on the services of premium instructors and contractors to deliver courses (that’s legal jargon meaning we spend a lot of money hiring the best!). The successful delivery of those courses depends on our ability to schedule instructors, secure venues, advertise the course and prepare materials ahead of time. As such, we must abide by the following restrictions when we provide a refund for a cancelled student registration.

Please note that due to the logistics of presenting high-quality multi-day FTO courses, we require you to request a cancellation no later than 4-weeks prior to FTO or FTO Update courses.

While we understand departmental scheduling conflicts, please be aware that there are no exceptions to this policy. When you register for, or register an officer for a course, please be sure you or that officer can attend or that you request a refund within the below listed cancellation periods. Upon check out you will be asked to confirm your understanding of this policy. Please do not check the box if you are not willing to abide by this policy in all cases.

If you need to cancel a spot in a course, contact us. We’ll use the date we receive your email to determine if we can refund you based on the refund schedule below. Here are the numbers you need to know:

Course Cancellations and Postponements

Savage Training Group is dedicated to delivering every course as advertised. Due to unforeseen circumstances, it may become necessary to cancel or postpone a course. In the event that becomes necessary, every effort will be made to communicate that to the registered students in a timely manner. Although such a cancellation is a highly unusual event, Savage Training Group nevertheless reserves the right to cancel or postpone a course for any reason at any time.

What happens in the event of a cancellation:

If your registration is PAID:

For registrations whose status is Paid either via credit card at the time of registration or via subsequent invoice, Savage Training Group will assign equivalent monetary credit for the registration fee(s) of registered parties that can be applied to the registration fee(s) for any future in-person Savage Training Group course(s) or any of our online courses.

This credit is transferrable to any personnel of your choice within your department. If a refund is preferred instead of this course credit, we ask that you respond to the course cancellation notice, which we will send by email upon cancellation, within two weeks. After two weeks, credit will be permanently assigned. To use the credit, please contact us.

If your registration is UNPAID:

If you elected to pay by invoice at the time of registration and that invoice is still due, we will cancel the invoice and we encourage you to register again for an alternate presentation of the course that was cancelled, any other in-person course we offer, or any of our online courses. 

Venue and Instructor Changes

Although unusual, in the event the venue for a particular course must be changed, refunds will not be issued but registered parties may elect not to attend and to instead receive credit for a future course.

Although also unusual, the instructors who were advertised to instruct a course may change.
