The Alliance is pleased to be able to offer high quality HERS rater training in the Northeast, approximately 4-6 times per year. It would be unfortunate to have to cancel a class at the last minute because one or more students drop out. Therefore, in order to cover the costs of our trainers and staff, and to continue to hold classes when there are cancellations, the following refund policy is in place:
If notice of your cancellation is received in writing (email), or by speaking live to a training coordinator:
21 or more days prior to class: You will be refunded the full training cost minus $100 processing fee, OR you may apply the fee, plus $100 for processing, to a future Alliance training session if one is available*.
Less than 21 days prior to class: You will be refunded the full training cost minus $250, OR you may apply the fee, plus $100 for processing, to a future Alliance training session if one is available*.
Fees paid for Alliance on-line testing are not refundable.
Exceptions to the above stated policy are rare but will be considered on a case by case basis with the approval of the NEHERS Board of Directors. If you have to cancel your registration, contact Laurie immediately at 978-544-8270.
*Future Alliance training sessions, may or may not include third party subsidies, therefore future sessions may be at a higher cost than the one from which you are withdrawing.
