Refund Policy: (As required by Nevada Law) If a student cancels his enrollment before the first scheduled day of class, he will receive a refund of all monies paid, less a $100.00 Withdrawal Fee or 10% of the tuition agreed upon in the enrollment agreement, whichever is less. If a student cancels his or her enrollment after attending their first class (“attendance” is defined as being marked by the instructor as present for that class), a refund will be granted. The refund will amount to the tuition agreed upon in the enrollment agreement, (adjusted on a pro-rated basis) minus 10 percent or $100, whichever amount is less. The pro-rated refund will be based on the percentage of the course completed compared to the total tuition amount. A student who cancels enrollment or is expelled after completion of 60% of the program will be ineligible to receive any refund and will be charged the full amount of the tuition.
AROMATHERAPY & ESSENTIAL OILS
(Only 1 seat left!) May 23rd, 30th & August 6th & 13th, 2019. This extraordinary Aromatherapy class brings 18 extraordinary oils and containers for an unparelled class that emphasizes safety and exceptional quality. All oils are Genuine and Authentic (highest quality standard in the world, far above the standards of “pure” and “therapeutic grade” which most essentail oils use today).This class is completely independent and free of all Multi-Level Marketing company oils which only offer inferior grade oils with little education on safety. The instructor, John M. Thorpe, RCST®, BCST, BCTMB, LMT, FSL, brings 20 years of on-going experience and education in Aromatherapy to this class. So for the best independent starting course on aromatherapy, here it is!
