Returns & Cancellations

Cancellation Policy for Course Registrations

Hands-On Seminars reserves the right to cancel courses. In the unlikely event of a cancellation, HOS will issue a full refund for the registration fee, but will not be responsible for any other charges incurred by the registrant due to the cancellation of the course. All refunds take up to 3 weeks to be processed, and will be issued by check.

Refunds for courses bought as part of a package or a promotion will be calculated at the regular course price.

Our live manual courses are costly to produce and require a process that involves a considerable amount of planning ahead, so early registrations are always appreciated.  Students who register for complete Certification packages such as The Fascial Manipulation® Certification Program and the Certification in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging (Cert. MSKUS) are not entitled to any refunds. Registrants canceling outside of four weeks of a course may receive a refund less a 50% cancellation fee and a 3.5% credit card processing fee, or transfer to another course without penalty, or keep the amount paid on file as a credit for a future course without penalty.

Registrants canceling within four weeks of the course are not eligible to receive any refunds. Registrants have the option to transfer to another course or keep a credit with us for a future course, both of which are subject to a 50% administrative fee.

Registrants who do not show up for a course have 3 calendar days after the course to notify us of their absence. At that time, registrants have the option to transfer to another course or keep a credit with us for a future course, both of which are subject to a $250 no show fee. Registrants who do not notify us of their absence within the allotted 3 days will forfeit all funds.

Registrations for our online courses and/or any course that has an online component, cannot be cancelled nor are eligible for a refund.
