How do I know if there are still spots available in a course?
When a course is full, our website displays a message indicating it’s full. If there are still fields for you to enter your registration info, then there are still spots available. If a course is full and you’d like to be placed on a waitlist, please use our online contact form to contact us.
What, if anything, should I bring to a course?
We recommend you bring note-taking materials to our courses. If you are attending an FTO-related course, please bring a laptop computer.
What is the recommended attire for attending a course?
Casual attire is sufficient for all of our courses.
What if I can’t make it to a course I signed up for?

If you can’t make it to a course you signed up for, we would appreciate being notified, and if your cancellation is within the cancellation window described in our cancellation policy, we will issue you a refund. Please use our online contact form to contact us so we can help, and include your order number.

Please note there are no exceptions to the cancellation policy.

If I request a refund, how will it be paid?
If you need to request a refund, our company policy states that we need that request in writing. Please use our online contact form and indicate the order number the refund pertains to. If you have multiple students on an order and need a refund for only a certain number of them, please let us know that as well in your message.

Refunds will be paid the same way they are received. If you paid by credit card, the refund will go back to the card. If you paid by check from an invoice sent to your department, a check will be sent by mail.

Remember, refund requests must be received within the cancellation window as described in our cancellation policy. There are no exceptions to this policy.

It takes a great deal of planning and logistical work to deliver the best training for our students, so thank you for your understanding.
