Yada yada is defined as:
“boring or empty talk (listening to a lot of yada yada about the economy) often used interjectionally especially in recounting words regarded as too dull or predictable to be worth repeating” (Merriam-Webster)
the fine print found at the end of contacts, proposals, legal documents and other papers that we all should probably read instead of skipping over.
The yada yada here is the Terms and Conditions for all courses offered, fees charged and payments received. Aka, the fine print.
Terms & conditions:
All course charges and/or fees are payable by cash or check and are due on the day of the course prior to the start of the course unless other payment arrangements have been made in advance. Checks should be made payable to Coastal CPR & First Aid, LLC.
No course certifying cards will be issued until course payment is received and clears our financial institution.
Any bounced check charges will be passed along to the signer of the payment that bounced. The course certifying card will not be issued until all charges are paid.
I understand that sometimes things happen and you may need to cancel a full course or individual course registration. Pre-paid individual course registrations will be refunded in full if cancelled 2 weeks or more before the course date and if the course is still held as scheduled with a minimum attendance at the course. On-site courses that are cancelled a minimum of two weeks before the course will have their course charge refunded. Cancellations (without rescheduling) made less than 2 weeks prior to the course will be refunded at 75%. Every effort to reschedule the course will be made.
Please note that if any specialized supplies or equipment has been purchased for your course, the cost of said equipment will be deducted from any refund.
If a refund is given for a course charge paid via PayPal, the PayPal fees will be deducted before the refund is sent. I.e. if I refund you the full course charge and the PayPal fee is 2% of the charge, you will receive 98% of your payment.
No Show at class
It makes me sad when someone registers for a class, and then doesn’t show up. It is an inconvenience to the rest of the class because we’ll often end up starting late because we’re waiting for one last person that we’re hoping will come dashing through the door. It is also an inconvenience for me because I had to order, and pay for, the supplies or books needed for the number of participants registered for the course. Thus I do not offer refunds for no-shows. That said, if you have a verifiably good reason I will gladly reschedule you to my next class.
The option to mail books or course materials before a course is offered at a fee which is equal to roughly the cost of postage, paypal charges if applicable and rounding up which offsets my time to take the materials to the post office. In general the cost to mail a book is roughly $3 – $3.25
Prices quoted are valid for up to 30 days after submitted. I reserve the right to adjust the course charge if there is a change in the cost of course supplies and/or shipping or if the number of attendees to the course increases or decreases. A full explanation of course charges can be provided for you.
For invoiced courses payment is due no later than 15 days after course is held. Payments received later than 15 days but no more than 30 days will be subject to a surcharge of no less than 10% of the total course charge. Payments received after 30 days will be subject to a 15% surcharge. No course certifying cards will be issued until course payment is received and clears our financial institution.
A $3 charge is added for any invoices issued through PayPal to offset the PayPal fees.
For a course request that requires a drive of more than 30 minutes outside of the Portsmouth, NH area an additional fee to cover fuel expenses may be included in the course charge.
In general I don’t accept requests to drive more than a 45 minute radius of the Portsmouth, NH area to offer classes. If your organization is having a retreat and would like CPR or First Aid instruction as part of your retreat and the location several hours from the Portsmouth, NH area lodging may be included in the course quote.
A deposit may be required if a course is scheduled more than 60 days in advance. In the event of a cancellation (without rescheduling) 15% of the deposit is non-refundable.
