Footnotes, Additional Details & Disclaimers

To host an in-person class, the class must have 20 registrants. If the class you are registering for does not have 20 registrants at least one week prior to the class, you will receive a class cancellation notice by phone. You will need to register for another class or you may register to take the online course.
For Inclement Weather Conditions: If you are registered for a class and there is inclement weather, you will be contacted directly by the National Safety Council, by phone, if the class is being cancelled. The NSC will make phone calls beginning at noon, the day prior to a class, if there are plans to cancel. If you have not received notification, the class is being hosted as scheduled.  If you receive notification that the class is cancelled, you may contact the NSC directly for a refund of your money, or to register for another upcoming course.
