Our deposit is non-refundable since that means you’ve asked us to reserve a spot for you and thus not allow in others who may be interested. Beyond that, payments you make are refundable to a degree depending on how close the training is.

If you cancel 3 months before the training, you will receive 75% of any payments back. You will receive 50% of your payments back if you cancel 2 month before training. Canceling less 2 months before training will result in no refund. If you drop out after the training has started, there is no refund or stoppage of payment plan autodrafts.

Note: If you leave the training before you have finished making payments, you will still be responsible for making those payments in the agreed upon manner and timeframe.

While it has never happened and we do not anticipate needing to, please note that M3 retains the right to cancel or delay any trainings for any reason. For cancelations, you will be refunded. For delay, you will be contacted about options.
