Class Cancellation

If EAC/ACB cancels a class because of low participation or any other reason, participants will be offered alternate class choices. If no alternate is chosen, a full refund will be issued. Any travel and hotel costs incurred by the registrant due to cancellation are solely the responsibility of the registrant.


Up to the final payment date, March 1, 2021, a refund will be given less the non-refundable deposit ($50).

From the final payment date to 30 days before the seminar, a refund will be given less a $250 cancellation cost upon the death of the registrant, military requirements for the registrant, or the death of an immediate family member. Immediate family is defined as spouse, child, parent, parent-in-law, grandparent, grandchild, or sibling.

29 to 0 days before the seminar, the EAC/ACB Board of Directors will review refunds based on the following:

  • A full refund will be given in the event of the death of the registrant.
  • A full refund will be given in the event of a member who is in the military and is unable to attend due to military requirements.
  • A full refund, minus a $350 cancellation cost and kit costs will be given in the event of the death of a member of the immediate family. Kits will be mailed out.
  • A full refund, minus a $350 cancellation cost and kit costs in the event of serious illness of the registrant or an immediate family member, or a natural disaster preventing the registrant’s attendance. Kits will be mailed out.
