We look at each course as an opportunity to learn not just from your instructor but from your peers as well!
Can I buy a recording of your courses?

Purchases, Refunds, and Course Transfer

I registered for a course, but now I cannot attend. Can I get a full refund?

Yes. Full refunds, less the non-refundable Eventbrite processing fee, are offered if a cancellation is made at least 48 hours before the course start date.

Cancellations made within 48 hours of a course start will not be refunded.

How do I get a refund?

If you are eligible for a refund you can start the process from the confirmation email you had received from Eventbrite. The system will then walk you through the steps.

How do I pay for the Art of HR Certificate Program?

Yes! The majority of the courses are offered in both Fall and Winter/Spring seasons. You may move your registration from one season to the next if you are unable to attend on the original date.

There will be a $25 processing fee on each transfer made.

Please email to make this transfer.

Can I transfer to a different course?

Yes! If you wish to take a different course altogether, you can transfer to a new course and will be charged a $25 processing fee.

Please email to make this transfer.

Can I give my ticket to someone else if I can’t attend?

Yes. Your registration ticket is fully transferrable. No processing fee will be applied. We do ask that you give us as much notice as possible so that we can ensure the new participant has all the relevant information to participate in the course.

I registered for a course that takes place over 2 half-days. I cannot attend one of those days. Can I attend the day that I missed at the next time the course is offered?

Unfortunately, no. For all our courses, our instructors create opportunities for participants to work together as a large group and in smaller groups in breakout rooms. Taking only one session of the next season’s offering for your course can potentially disrupt the dynamics that are created in the classroom setting.

You can register again for the full 2 half-day course in the following term, for an additional half price of the registration fee. Email us at for information on how to register.

Can an organization book a course for internal training for its staff?

Yes! We are happy to work with you to design a course for your staff that meets the learning outcomes you envision. Or maybe you need a specific Art of HR course delivered just to your team, at a time that works for you. Feel free to contact us for more info!
