Seminars and Intensive courses also occur in a group environment, with a trainer available to provide assistance and answer questions as each member works on an individual project. Training Session schedules and topics are determined by the User and Us and are subject to change at Our reasonable discretion.
The goals and schedules are agreed between the User and Us.
Each lesson is 40 minutes long, followed by a 5 minute break.
The User has the right to postpone or cancel a scheduled training session allowing up to a 48-hour notice period of the lesson. If the User cancels less than the allotted 48-hours or is unable to attend at the arranged time, then the User will be charged for that training session.
