Cancellation Policy:
If you need to cancel your registration, please contact VAPA at 866-482-3222, you will be given credit toward a future training, if canceled at least one week prior.  In some instances refunds can be made. For a refund to be considered, it must be requested at least ten days prior to the date of the training. ALL REFUNDS WILL BE IN THE FORM OF A CHECK, NOT CREDITED BACK TO A CREDIT CARD. We ask that you alert us to your cancellation as soon as possible.
We never like to do it, but because life happens VAPA reserves the right to cancel any course. In such instance, your registration fee will be refunded, in the form of a check.
NOTE: If there are weather issues and a training needs to be canceled, you will receive notification via the email you registered with, by 6am the day of the training (perhaps earlier).

If training is canceled due to weather, in most cases it will be rescheduled and you will have the option to attend the new date, be credited for another, future training of your choice or be refunded by check.

If a training registration deadline has passed contact Buffy Root, VAPA Training Coordinator at
two-boys@comcast.net, to see if space is still available.
