[+] [-] How do I obtain credit after attending a seminar?
A Certificate of Successful Completion will only be issued if you have complied with and completed all required procedures. You must attend the entire seminar to receive full credit.

The following matters are dependent on your specific profession and its licensing board requirements: credit for partial attendance, credit reporting procedures, and home study options. You may contact us with questions.

Certificates of Completion are distributed at the conclusion of the live seminar for those who register at least 10 days prior to the seminar date and who complete the full day. Partial certificates of completion (if your board allows), and for those who register within 10 days before the event, will receive their certificate of completion within 30 days following the event.

[+] [-] Is there a registration deadline?

Once the standard registration rate is in effect, there is no registration deadline, but space is limited.

Please call us for information on special rates for students and groups of 5 or more.

We recommend pre-registration to ensure there are sufficient seminar materials on site. Walk-in registrations are accepted when space allows, but admittance cannot be guaranteed. Group rates do not apply to walk-ins.

[+] [-] What do I need to bring to a seminar?

After the seminar, you can receive the physical product or a gift certificate.

Occasionally, changes are made due to speaker availability, participant demand or unforeseen circumstances. While PESI will do everything possible to ensure participant satisfaction, PESI's liability is limited to the tuition fee only.
[+] [-] How will you notify me if a seminar is cancelled?
Because our speakers arrive the day before, we can usually hold our seminars on bad-weather days for anyone who can make it. If we learn after hours that a seminar has to be cancelled, we will make every effort to contact you (a good reason to provide a home phone number and email).

Also, we update our after-hours voicemail greeting with any weather-related seminar changes. If bad weather threatens, please call our toll-free number before you depart.

If we are aware of bad weather in your area, PESI will extend the seminar refund deadline to include the morning of the program.
