All Refunds and/or credits will be issued in U.S. Dollars only. Included in the registration fee is a $50 deposit which is non-refundable for those who ARE accepted to train. If for some reason one is NOT accepted to train to become a CPI at this time, ALL monies will be promptly refunded less a $15.00 processing fee with a letter of explanation.
No refunds will be issued if cancellation is 14 days or less prior to the training weekend one has signed up to attend. Instead, a credit for a PraiseMoves Teacher Certification weekend will be issued and is valid for 12 months.
If requesting a refund, manuals and training DVD must be returned. If they are unmarked, we may be able to send them to another CPI-in-Training. If marked, the cost of the manual(s) and/or DVD will be deducted from the refund. We’re sure YOU wouldn’t want to receive a marked or previously highlighted Training Manual, would you?
We ask that you prayerfully consider whether or not you are being called by the Lord to this ministry before submitting your application. Do you feel the Lord is calling you to do this, and are you willing to follow-through on your commitment? “For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first, and count the cost, whether he has sufficient to finish it?” Luke 14:28.
We take very seriously the calling to become a Certified PraiseMoves Instructor (CPI). It is more than an exercise certification. It is a calling similar to that of becoming a pastor or ordained evangelist. Therefore, we consider prayerfully everyone who applies to become part of the PraiseMoves Fitness Ministry.
If someone who has committed to become a CPI and has been accepted by the ministry staff requests a refund and later decides to reapply, they may not be accepted unless there were dire extenuating circumstances necessitating their withdrawal from the program.
This may seem harsh, but we do take Fitness Ministry very seriously, are accountable to other ministerial organizations for our actions, and strive to uphold the integrity of the ministry for all CPIs and the persons to whom they minister.
Refunds will be sent 2-4 weeks from the time we receive any returned training materials. Policies are subject to change without notice.
Full attendance at the Teacher Certification weekend is required to receive credit and certification. For example, if the training times are 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., one is expected to be at the training from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. If a CPI-in-training arrives late or leaves early, they may have to take the training again at a later time. Since the training “Blitz” is presented in a compact format over a short amount of time, all parts of the training are important (and what is “caught” is often of equal or greater value than what is “taught”). Please consider this when making your travel arrangements.
Since this is a rigorous one-day training, it is important that you arrive the day before the training in order to be well-rested for the full-day event.
For fun and fellowship, we like to have dinner together after the training at a local restaurant to get to know one another a little better. While we would LOVE to have you join us for this, it is not mandatory if your travel requirements necessitate your leaving directly after the training. Lasting friendships often begin during trainings, and it’s great to network with other like-minded members of the Body of Christ. We hope you can join us!
