SPAAR Education & Course Provider Policies
There are no prerequisites for taking a course unless otherwise noted.
Attendance and Etiquette
Continuing education courses must be attended in their entirety in order to receive credit for the number of approved hours. (MN Statute 45.30 Subd.4a) Students are required to sign-in prior to class start. Students may also be required to sign-out at the end of class and will be notified by the coordinator monitoring the class if necessary. Students must not leave the class for any extended period of time outside breaks. Be on time or early for class. Students are considered late if they have not signed in prior to the start of class and no CE can be earned – regardless of reason. There is no 5-minute rule, nor does parking, traffic, weather, technology, etc. permit late attendance – per MN DOC. Students shall be respectful and courteous of their peers. Not only is this good business practice, but any attendee not engaged and attentive during the class will be denied CE credits. A staff coordinator is in attendance to monitor and enforce class attendance and etiquette policies.
Cancellations, Refunds, & No Shows
SPAAR refund policy-In order to receive a refund for a class, students must provide a cancellation request with-in 24 hours to the class. Students who cancel after, who arrive late for class, or who do not show up, will not receive a refund. All payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. For classes offered to students with no enrollment fee, a $25 no-show fee will be issued for any student who does not cancel 24-hours prior and who does not attend the class, due upon receipt.
On Demand Education
