Our Policy

We’re here to help. If you have any questions regarding the following school policies, for more information please feel free to Contact Us.

  • To Pre-Register for classes

    To Pre-Register and guarantee a space in class, registration must be accompanied by payment in full. Mail (check or credit card) or fax (credit card only) the registration form with payment so that we receive it 1 business day prior to the first class session to take advantage of pre-paid package savings. CAPE will mail, fax or email you a confirmation, and course materials when applicable, time permitting. Walk-in registrants, (space available) must pay tuition plus a $20 surcharge by check or credit card (no cash accepted) at the start of class. Walk-ins should call to confirm availability.

    To Pre-Register for Distance Learning

    Register online, print registration form and fax or mail to CAPE with payment, or call our office.

    Reschedule Policy

    Fees apply per person per event. A $20 reschedule fee will be waived if CAPE receives WRITTEN notification at least 1 business day prior to the scheduled seminar. If a suitable alternate class selection is not currently available, the re-scheduled class can be transferred with no fee to a “To Be Scheduled” (TBS) category. TBS class credits may be used anytime in the next two years for any like kind CAPE class. TBS classes will expire after two years. All “no-shows” will be charged a $20 fee to reschedule. There are no refunds for “no-shows”. Note: To reschedule from distance learning to classroom, all distance learning materials must be returned to CAPE in unused and saleable condition with a written request to reschedule.

    Cancellation Policy

    Cape reserves the right to cancel any class due to circumstances occurring beyond our control.

    Completion Time Limit

    Pre-License: All Cape School pre-license courses are good for one year from the date of purchase. Additional extensions may be purchased for students needing more time to complete their course. The materials are constantly being reviewed and updated according to state licensing content outlines which requires us to put the one-year time limit for completion. Our priority is to ensure that our students have the most current and up-to-date information to pass the licensing examination.

    Continuing Education: All Cape School continuing education courses are good for two years from the date of purchase. Additional extensions may be purchased for students needing more time to complete their course. The materials are constantly being reviewed and updated, which requires us to put the two-year time limit for completion. Our priority is to ensure that our students have the most current and up-to-date information.

These fees will remain on your account for one year, and may be applied to future seminars offered by Cape. Pre-license and Exam Preparation materials are non-refundable. There are NO refunds for completed courses.

    If Cape lowers the price within 30 days of the purchase of a course, a refund for the difference will be issued upon request.
