Therapeutic Crisis Intervention

Members and Non-members: For cancellations made 11-30 days in advance, we will make every effort to fill the vacancy with another applicant and refund the registration fee minus $50 CDN service charge. If we cannot find a replacement, we will refund only half of your registration fee. No refunds will be given with less than 10 days notice. Cancellation must be submitted in writing. Substitutions are permitted.

Respite Online Training
A registrant has a six month window of time to access the course once reg. Safeguards is only charging a $25 CDN administrative fee which is the portion that would be retained if a person should cancel, therefore there is no reimbursement for a cancellation during this period.

Cancellation by Safeguards
Safeguards makes every attempt to ensure that courses run. We reserve the right to change arrangements or cancel courses. We will notify participants as soon as possible of any changes and refund registration fees if applicable.
