Course Enrollment Policy - while I will do everything I can to make sure a scheduled course goes ahead as planned, I also have to ensure there are a sufficient number of participants to provide for a rich interaction between the learners, a diversity of perspectives and the course discussion are viable. As a result, I require a minimum enrollment of at least six participants to proceed with this course.
If you have any concerns regarding this policy, it is in your best interest to do the following:
- Enroll early - I offer a significant discount for early enrollments since early enrollments are a signal that participants want this course to happen in their community.
- Encourage friends, peers and colleagues to take the course with you - multiple enrollments from the same company will receive a generous discount and word-of-mouth referals that result in an enrollment receive an amazon.com gift card.
- Contact me - ten to seven days before the scheduled course date, I review the enrollment numbers and make a decision about whether to proceed with the course or reshedule.
