Enrollment and Fees

Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. Each class is limited to 20 enrollments. At least 12 paid enrollments must be received 30 days before the scheduled date for the class.

We reserve the right to cancel a scheduled class with at least 14 days advance notice if the enrollment minimum is not met, or for other unforeseen circumstances. In the event we cancel a class, we will immediately refund payment.

Lunch and snacks are provided. Attendees are responsible for arranging their own transportation, accommodations, and other meals. Attendees may opt to attend for fewer than 4 days; however, the material presented each day builds on the topics covered in the previous days, so not attending the initial day(s) is highly discouraged.

Fees:

  • Attendance fee: $800
  • Optional laptop computer rental fee: $250

Payment by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or American Express) or check, or a written purchase order must be received with the enrollment form. If you cancel less than 30 days before the class begins, the payment is non-refundable. Sea-Bird will contact you by mail or email (preferred) when we receive your enrollment form to confirm that you are registered, and send a map and hotel list to assist in arranging your accommodations.
