Course registration and cancellation
You can sign up for one of our courses or events either digitally or by sending a fax. We do recommend signing up via our website. You can find the direct link to the course and event registrations in all of our information brochures and flyers.
All participants hold the right to withdraw their registration. All withdrawals must be sent to us within a week of sending the original registration via e-mail, letter or fax. The withdrawal does not require a detailed explanation or reason. In order to comply with the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient to send the cancellation within the deadline. The right of withdrawal expires if the registered person is present at the beginning of the event. Regardless of the right of withdrawal, all participants hold the right to name a person to represent them at the event they signed up for.
Once the right of withdrawal is expired, participants may cancel their participation up to four weeks before the actual event. Any later than this, a cancellation fee of 50% of the original event fee is due. If a cancellation is received any later than two weeks before the start of the event, the full participation fee must be paid.
The fees for our events usually include the costs for our course material and basic catering (coffee and lunch). If the event includes an evening program, all costs for this are covered unless stated otherwise. Travel and hotel costs are not included.
If you have any questions regarding our activities, your center membership or upcoming events and courses, please do not hesitate to contact us and get in touch. We are happy to provide you with further information any time. Just give us a call or send us an e-mail.
