Our Policies

Cancellation Policy

Eliquo Training and Development Inc. will make every attempt to be flexible in regards to class cancellations and rescheduling. In an attempt to ensure that everyone enjoys a consistent training experience, Eliquo offers the following policies.

Public Courses

Any student cancellation that occurs a minimum of six (6) business days prior to a scheduled class is eligible for a full class credit or a 100% refund on the cost of the class. Due to scheduling logistics, if you cancel or re-schedule a registration within five (5) business days of the course date, payment is due in full at that time and will be held as a credit towards a re-scheduled date or a future course booking. Course credits are valid for 12 months from the date of the original class booking.

All cancellations and rescheduling requests must be sent in writing by email to registrations@eliquotraining.com. Verbal communication of a cancellation will not meet our refund requirements.

In the event that a class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment, your full registration fee will be refunded or you can reserve a seat in the next available class. You will be notified of a class cancellation at least five (5) business days in advance of the scheduled class.

Eliquo Training and Development Inc. reserves the right to postpone or cancel a class at any time, in which case the refund and rescheduling policy would apply. Eliquo Training and Development Inc. is not liable for any travel expenses incurred by the student, even in the event of a cancellation.

Eliquo welcomes qualified substitute students in place of the originally registered student providing that we are notified in writing at least one day in advance before the class date.

Classes are offered on a first come first serve basis.

Student Feedback

Mike went over and beyond as far as what he shared with us. Not only did he cover the course material, he also include tricks, tips and shot cuts on what he has learnt over the years to help us with our programming and testing going forward. I think the knowledge add ins will make following these guidelines, programming and testing, so much easier, saving tons of time going forward. Thank you Mike for being so good. - Tim Scott
I very much enjoyed this class and I know I will be able to apply what I have learned today. - Jacinthe LeBlanc
Excellent course, content and location. So far the courses I've taken here were complete and very enjoyable, and allowed me to take away new skillset. - Terry D'Entremont

Web-based training is super easy to set up and doesn't require fancy software.
