Students also cannot bring non-registered attendees to their class (e.g., friends, family, children, co-workers, etc,). Phones must be silenced and put away during class. Taking calls or texting once class has started is not allowed.
If you are going to be late, please call Heart CPR @ 941-500-2917. Class cannot be held up more than 5 (five) minutes from class start time. Students who arrive more than 5 minutes late will not be allowed to attend the class due to missing the required course information. Students arriving late must reschedule. The Student Reschedule Policy will apply to this attendance policy. Students who show after class start time are considered "No Show on time".
Our class size is limited and we reserved the seat in the class you wanted, on the date and time you signed up for. No refund or credit will be given for “No Shows”. or "No Show on Time" If a student does NOT show up to a class, or has showed up after 5 minutes of class start time, they are considered a no-show or "did not show up on time". IF YOU ARE RUNNING LATE AND KNOW THAT YOU CANNOT ARRIVE ON TIME, CALL OR TEXT US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WE WILL WORK WITH YOU TO RESCHEDULE!!!
Please understand that we hear “it wasn’t my fault” or it was an “emergency” from those who want to request a reschedule or credit for "not showing up" for a class and that we should refund or change our policy for things like that. Please understand it wasn’t our fault either and we reserved the seat for you as promised with your completed payment. We must still pay our Instructors for the seat you paid for and reserved with us. We thank you in advance for your understanding of our policy and why it is we have it in place. If you don't think you will arrive on time, text or email us for a reschedule date.
As a courtesy to you, we will work with you to schedule the same class type.

All reschedules must be received as soon as possible before the original class date and received by text 941-500-2917 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. As a courtesy to you, we will work with you to schedule the same class type at a date and time. AFTER TWO reschedules, you forfeit ALL fees paid!
Student Retake Policy
We will do everything we can to remediate students. If after several attempts of remediation, if a student fails a class (skills check and or written test) the student must register and pay for a new class.

Cancellation and reschedule policies will apply.
CLASS CANCELLATION POLICIES
Low Enrollment Cancellation
Although we make every effort to promote classes scheduled at our training site, low enrollment rarely happens. Heart CPR reserves the right to cancel a class due to low enrollment. In case of a class cancellation, other than the Emergency Cancellation Policy, any student who has paid for his/her class will have the option of rescheduling into another class at no additional charge. If the option of a new training date is not held within 10 days, or after existing AHA card holders (renewals) expiration date, the customer may request a full refund at the approval of Heart CPR. (If Heart CPR cancels a class due to a weather emergency out of its control, then full refunds will not be issued). The student has the option of rescheduling to fit their schedule within 30 days.
If a student cancels within 24 hours after their registration, and 48 hours before class start time, they are entitled to a 100% refund. The “TIME STAMP” of your registration email will be the official time of record that will be used.
The 24 hour period after registration, please contact HeartCPR@aol.com. The time stamp of your registration submission will be the official time used. There is no refund. A CLASS CREDIT WILL BE APPLIED. You can apply your credit to another class taken within 30 days or transfer your credit to another student.
This policy applies to cancellations 48 before the class has happened. If the student does not show up, or did not call prior to a class, or showed up more than 5 minutes late, then the Student No-Show policy below applies. Heart CPR has reserved the seat for you as promised and has scheduled an instructor by your completed payment & registration. We have fulfilled our obligation by being prepared to conduct the course.
Emergencies happen, and often without notice. If a class cancels, due to severe weather, instructor illness/injury, family emergencies or anything else that might be considered to be an emergency, registered students will receive priority enrollment in the next available class. Class cancellations are due to severe weather are issued within 24-48 hours of a class. If there are no available classes within the following two weeks, then Heart CPR will issue a full refund.
As a safety organization, we do not send out instructors in weather emergencies, as indicated by the National Weather Service (e.g. Severe Tropical/Thunder/Lightening Storm watches or warnings, Tornado watches or warnings, Hurricane watches or warnings). If a class is canceled due to a weather emergency, and if a student wishes to cancel or not take the next available date, that student may receive a refund of the class or they may use the Student Transfer option. Heart CPR unfortunately has no control over cancellation due to weather emergencies.
OUTSTANDING BALANCE POLICY
If an organization or a client carries an outstanding balance, their remaining balance will be due when class is held. Certification cards will not be released to the customer until their invoice is paid in full.
ORGANIZATION CLASS START TIME POLICY
If an organization/client schedules a class, and holds, or delays the instructor more then 30 minutes from beginning the course at the agreed to time, the organization/client will be charged $40 , followed by a rate of $60/hour, which will be billed in 15 minute increments. Certification cards cannot be issued to a client until their balance is paid in full.
