Training Policies

Registration Policy:
CPOA will not register anyone for a class unless payment has been received in full. If you are not able to provide payment upfront you may provide a credit card to hold the seat. However, all students must be paid in full by 10 days prior to the class, if payment is not received at that point and a card has been given to hold the seat, it will be charged.


You will receive a confirmation via email after we receive your course registration and your payment is processed. Please review the confirmation carefully and check for any changes in course date or location. Tuition payment will also be reflected.
