If a Spinning Babies® Workshop, Certified Parent Educator (SpBCPE) Training or Aware Practitioner (AP) Workshop is Cancelled by Spinning Babies®
If cancellation of the event is deemed necessary, based on local health guidelines or travel restrictions, participants will be notified as soon as possible via email, and the full registration fee will be refunded. Participants are responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and related expenses.
If you Need to Cancel Due to COVID-19 Exposure
Please refrain from attending a workshop if you have symptoms that may be related to COVID-19.
Those who are experiencing cold or allergy symptoms, which may be unrelated to COVID-19, a negative COVID-19 test is an appropriate measure before attending a workshop.
If any participant is unable to attend their scheduled Spinning Babies® Workshop due to having COVID-19 or recent exposure, please let us know prior to the first day of the workshop. Your fee may be transferred towards registration for a future workshop with the same trainer, at the discretion of the Approved Trainer.
Please note: The Spinning Babies® Workshop refund policy is at the discretion of each trainer and will vary based on who is teaching your particular workshop. If you have questions prior to or after registering for an event, please contact the trainer directly.
In the case of the Advanced Trainings (SpBCE or AP), if you are unable to attend your scheduled workshop due to having COVID-19 or recent exposure, you may use your paid fee towards a future Advanced Training or Spinning Babies® conference within 1 year of the original event date.
If a participant cancellation occurs due to any reason unrelated to COVID-19, the cancellation policy for each Spinning Babies® Workshop or Advanced Training will apply.
Participants are responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and related expenses and Spinning Babies® is unable to refund these expenses.
The substitute must fit all prerequisites.
No substitutions after October 4th, 2021. Please note this.
Substitution requests require giving us the full contact information of the person to whom you are giving or selling your registration.
Arrange a substitution by including your full name in your email, and include the full contact information of the substitute in an email to info@SpinningBabies.com. Write as soon as possible so they have time to receive communication from us to verify eligibility and get confirmation of their place in the workshop.
Make sure your substitute is eligible! If your substitute is not eligible, follow the refund schedule. You must work out the payment details with your substitute yourselves or it will be considered a cancellation and charged according to the cancellation schedule.
