Course Enrollee's Right to Cancel:
Enrollee may cancel a course at any time. If cancelled 31 or more days before the starting date of the course Rescue Response Gear will refund the amount the enrollee has previously paid toward course tuition minus a $50.00 enrollment fee. In this case Enrollee can inquire about possible transfer of tuition paid to another Rescue Response Gear course held within one year of the date of the original course. Tuition paid by Enrollees cancelling enrollment in a course 1 to 30 days before the starting date of the course or during the duration of the course is non-refundable. In this case Enrollee can inquire about possible substitution in the course by another qualified enrollee to participate in the original Enrollee's place.

Rescue Response Gear's Right To Cancel:
Rescue Response Gear retains the right to cancel a course at any time should circumstances dictate doing so. Conducting rope training courses requires a minimum number of students. Conditions beyond the control of Rescue Response Gear such as weather and/or other safety related conditions could require cancellation of the course by Rescue Response Gear. Please keep this in mind when making course related commitments such as airline, hotel and car reservations and other preparations. Rescue Response Gear is not responsible for reimbursement of any such charges. In the event of a course cancellation Rescue Response Gear will provide notification to enrolled students as early as is possible. For your protection we recommend you look into trip cancellation insurance coverage with your insurance agent or with the providers you book travel arrangements & accommodations with.
