TERMS AND CONDITIONS
IRESCUE TRAINING is committed to safeguarding the health and safety of learners in any course. Some courses, such as CPR, require physical exertion. Individuals with existing medical conditions such as pregnancy, bone, muscle, and joint conditions, and respiratory conditions, should consult a doctor prior to attendance. We do not assume any risk or liability for injuries or illness that may result from course participation. If you do not participate 100%, you cannot successfully complete the course and receive certification. However, you are still welcome to attend and observe.
There is no refund or credit for cancellation if you do not show up to your course or if you do not complete your course. A request to reschedule to a different course date must be received by IRESCUE TRAINING at least two (2) business days before the original course date by email. Each request to reschedule is subject to approval and an administrative charge of $25 per participant. Upon approval of a rescheduling request the participant may select a new course date that is within sixty (60) days of the original course date.
Absence Due to Illness:
Absence due to illness will be treated as a request to reschedule to a different date, and subject to the administrative fee listed above in the Payment Policy. If you are not able to attend a course due to illness, you must submit a request to reschedule to a different date no later than four (4) business days after your original course date. As an additional precaution against transmission of colds and influenza, we will not allow you to attend a class if you exhibit signs of such illness. You will be asked to reschedule to a different date.
Course Cancellation by IRESCUE TRAINING:
IRESCUE TRAINING reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule a course in the case of an emergency, or instructor illness. In such an event, participants may choose either a full refund, or attend on another date. We will attempt to notify participants of any cancellations at least 48 hours prior to a course. During winter months we will attempt to notify participants of any cancellations due to storm conditions, at least 24 hours prior to a course. However, in extreme weather conditions, less than 24 hours notice may be provided. Course cancellation notice will be communicated by email and / or a posting on our website.
Course Certification Requirements:
Certification is provided at the successful completion of a course. Participants are required to attend the entire class. 100% participation is mandatory. Participants are evaluated based on their ability to perform the skills during the course, in addition to a written multiple choice test. Refunds are not provided for unsuccessful attempts. A simple re-test (of a second version of the test) is likely on the day. We can read questions, sometimes arrange for re-wording of test questions or work with those who have some learning challenges like dyslexia or reading / writing comprehension difficulties. We ask for upfront disclosure so that we can accommodate for this - where possible. Failing this, participants have the option of attending a make-up course free of charge. This policy reflects our commitment to your learning.
IRESCUE TRAINING may use photos or video of course participants taken in class in promotional material, not limited to our website, email communications, and other published media. We will not use any descriptions or markings that will personally identify you. If photos or videos are taken, the instructor will notify the class and you will have the opportunity to opt-out of participation. Otherwise, your participation grants IRESCUE TRAINING the right to use any and all photographs or video taken during training for the purpose of marketing or promotion.
IRESCUE TRAINING collects your name and contact info for the purpose of registration, scheduling, and communications related to your course. From time to time, we may use this information to notify you of pending certification renewal requirements. IRESCUE TRAINING will not sell or transfer your contact information to any other party.
