SUBSTITUTE PRESENTERS

When unplanned events take place, it is always preferable to find a substitute presenter rather than cancel a class. In most cases involving licensing or CE classes, we make no guarantee as to who a presenter will be.

WEATHER

During inclement weather, all scheduled classes will go on as planned. If a student cannot attend a class due to inclement weather, please see our cancelation and transfer policies above. If the instructor is unable to make it to the class, the instructor will work with the class at the next scheduled meeting to plan a make-up session. Contact info@nullrres-online.com with questions.

In the event of an extreme emergency, we will post any class cancellations on our website.
