Can’t Attend the Course?

If you have registered for a course and you are not able to attend, you have three options:

  1. Reschedule your registration to another public course
  2. Substitute a friend or colleague in your place
  3. Cancel your registration (Cancellation fee policy below)

You may choose any of these options as late as the first day of the course. To get started, log into your online profile, click on “View Course Registration History,” open the course information page and scroll to the bottom for options.

Cancellation fee

If you choose to cancel your registration, you will forfeit part or all of your registration fee.

  • If the cancellation date is more than 10 days from the start date of the course, the system will refund the registration fee minus a $10 cancellation fee.
  • If the cancellation date is between nine and one days prior to the start date of the course, the system will refund the registration fee minus a $30 late cancellation fee.
  • If the cancellation is made on the first date of class, there is no refund.
  • Substitute registrants cannot cancel registration, but can reschedule their registration for an upcoming public course. Find out more about public and controlled courses.

Safe Kids recommends avoiding cancellation fees by rescheduling to an upcoming course or substituting a friend or colleague.

If you must cancel due to an emergency, please download and submit the Emergency Fee Refund Application, found under Resources-FAQS/Forms.
