Workshop Refund Policy:

If you can no longer attend a workshop you have registered for, you can either receive a credit for another workshop, or receive a refund if you are within the refund policy period. All live workshop refunds will be honored for cancellations received at least seven (7) days prior to the date of a live webinar or live workshop. Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds for On-Demand (Asynchronous) webinars due to the fact that once purchased, the participant has access immediately to all materials.

Refunds will also not be issued due to technical limitations of the participant. We provide detailed instructions, and we are happy to assist in this area to a reasonable extent; however, we don’t have the staff to guide you through every step of the process. Please note that payments made via Credit Card have certain fees associated with them, some of which are non-recoupable and are therefore non-refundable by Bright Path Counseling and Consulting, LLC. Therefore, all workshop payments made by Credit Card will have a three percent credit card fee deducted from the refund. These fees do not apply to cash or check payments.

Should you have any questions regarding our workshop refund policy, please contact Brandy Rogers (770) 904-0737.
