• Do you offer any Discounts?

Yes! We currently offer three discounts:

1. Multiple Class Discount: When you sign up for two or more Red Pines multi-day workshops you can receive a 10% discount on each class you pay for at the time of registration.

2. Student Discount: If you are a current student you can receive a 10% discount on any Red Pines multi-day workshop.

3. If you are a first time Red Pines registrant you can receive a onetime 20% discount off on any one Red Pines multi-day workshop. (If you have ever taken a continuing education class with us in the past, you will not qualify for this discount).

Discounts do not apply to one day workshops.

Discounts do not apply to Late Registrations completed after the registration deadline.

You must notify us if you would like to take advantage of any of the above discounts. Discounts are not automatic and in order to receive any of the above discounts you must register by calling (518) 489-4026.

 

• When do I register for a class?

Please pay close attention to the Registration Deadlines for each class. If you register after the Deadline, we implement a $20 late registration fee to cover the expenses related to late registrations. Registration deadlines are needed so that we have ample time to advise the instructor of the number of participants. It allows for certificates to be made, materials to be copied, invoices to be prepared, and other necessary paperwork to be completed. The Registration Close Date is typically 2-3 days prior to a class start date. No further registrations will be taken once the Registration has been closed and the class listing no longer appears on the registration database.

 

• What should I bring to class?

If you are attending a bodywork class you should bring a set of sheets, lubricant and loose comfortable clothing. Not sure if your class is a "bodywork class", bring your supplies just in case. Some Instructors have additional items they would like you to bring to class. These items are listed under the class descriptions. We also suggest bringing a bag lunch with you and we do have refrigerators and microwaves for students to use.

 

• What is your cancellation policy?

Red Pines Instructors have the right to cancel a class at their discretion. One reason for a class cancellation might be if there is a low number of registrants in the class at the time of the Registration Deadline. Another reason might be if the instructor is not feeling well or has a personal matter to tend to. In any of these cases, the registered students will be notified with a phone call ASAP, and will receive a FULL REFUND (minus any late fees if applicable).

Should you need to cancel your registration and withdraw from the class, our policy is that if you notify us prior to the Registration Deadline you will receive a FULL REFUND minus a $20 processing fee.

If you notify us that you will not be attending a class after the Registration deadline and up to 72 hours before the class you will be refunded 50% minus any late fee registration if applicable.
If you give less than 72 hours notice or don't show up to the class at all, you will receive NO REFUND.

Payments cannot be transferred to future classes. Completion of the workshop in its entirety is required to receive Continuing Education credit. No partial credit given.

• What about weather?

If the weather looks bad we will use our best judgment to determine if a class needs to be cancelled. This decision will be based on the safety of travel in and around the capital disctrict. In some cases, cancelled classes can be rescheduled, otherwise registrants will be refunded for classes cancelled due to poor weather.

If we do decide to cancel a class, a voicemail will be left on the main line at the Center for Natural Wellness by 6:30am the day of the class. In the event of poor weather, please call the school the day of your class and listen for a cancellation message. If you do not hear a cancellation message, you can assume classes will be held.

 

• Can I make a class suggestion?

Yes! We love hearing from you about classes you’re interested in. Please let us know what classes you would like to see being offered in the future at the Red Pines Training Center. We'll do our best to bring in classes that are in high demand.

 

• Can I get a brochure of classes you offer?
