Terms & Conditions

Please read these Terms & Conditions in their entirety prior to making your purchase. If you are unsure about any section of these Terms & Conditions, please contact us at 646-564-3546 so we can assist you.

Changes & Cancellations For 1 Day In-Person Courses

All seminars (in-house & scheduled) are subject to a 25% administration fee if written notice is given at least 5 business days in advance.  You may not receive a refund if written notice is not given at least 5 business days in advance.  Attendee substitutions are permitted and must be emailed to contact@GreenEdu.com to be processed.  In the event that Green Education Services, LLC cancels an event, a 100% refund will be issued or attendees can choose to apply their registration fees to another Green Education Services event.  By submitting payment you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.

Changes & Cancellations For 2 Day Or Longer In-Person Courses

Changes or cancellations after 5:00pm (EST) 30 days prior to the class start date will receive a refund but will be charged a 25% late cancellation fee. No refunds will be made for cancellations received within 5 business days of the class start date, or for those who fail to attend the course.

Changes & Cancellations For Live Webinar Courses

All sales are final and refunds are not issued for Live Webinar Courses and Packages, i.e. the Silver LEED GA CMP Package.

Changes & Cancellations For Online Anytime Webinar Packages

All sales are final and refunds are not issued for Online Anytime Webinar Packages, i.e. the Platinum CMP Package. 

Changes & Cancellations For All Courses

Green Education Services reserves the right to change instructors at their sole discretion, and changes of this nature will come with or without notice to students. No section of these Terms & Conditions will be affected by a change of instructor, nor will refunds be granted in the event of a change of instructor.

Travel, Lodging, and Other Expenses

Green Education Services has the right to postpone courses given that students have a week of notice. Green Education Services must postpone courses when student registration does not reach the minimum required amount. In the event of a postponed course, students are provided with alternative dates to transfer into. If you must book your travel arrangements (i.e., airline travel) more than a week prior to the class start, please contact Green Education Services to ensure that the course has met minimum registration requirements prior to making your travel arrangements

Tardiness, Early Departures, and In-Class Certification Examination Assistance

Planned tardiness or early departures must be communicated to Green Education Services before the course begins. If a student arrives after the posted course start time it is at the instructor's discretion to deny entry to the class, and the student may be subject to a 25% rescheduling fee or may be required to forfeit the training fees in their entirety.

For some classes that require certification examinations, the instructor may read the examination questions and answers to students but under no circumstances can they write the answers on behalf of students. This service is provided at the discretion of the instructor and is ultimately mandated by the certifying body (i.e. EPA, OSHA, local States, etc) and is not under direct control of Green Education Services, LLC. All decisions made in class by the instructor with regards to this policy are final and any student that cannot complete the certification exam is not eligible for a refund. Students are encouraged to call and inquire about any writing or comprehension disabilities prior to purchasing a course, as this is the only way to guarantee a student's situation can be accommodated.

Relationship with GBCI, USGBC, & LEED

Green Education Services is not associated with the GBCI, USGBC, or LEED and none of the aforementioned entities endorse Green Education Services in any way.  Green Education Services will issue a Certificate of Completion upon successful completion of any of our seminars, but said Certificate does not guarantee that any candidate can take the Green Associate Exam - only the GBCI admits applicants to take the exam.  Green Education Services does not administer any of the LEED exams.
