Registration, Cancellation and Transfer Policy

The Adventure Risk Management Registration, Cancellation and Transfer Policy is based upon our goal to deliver quality, well-planned outings for our clients. Late cancellations and transfers place courses at risk of cancellation, creating hardship and frustration for other registered clients. Further, once a client is confirmed on a course, Adventure Risk Management incurs multiple expenses that cannot be recovered after a cancellation. Please read this policy carefully, as it will apply to your registration!

Registration: All courses require full payment to reserve a space. There are no refunds or transfers for no-shows or early departures from a course. Cancellations or transfer requests will be handled according to the following criteria:

Registration Requests received within 14 days of Day 1 are subject to a $30 Late Registration fee. Additional shipping costs may be applied to expedite textbook shipping.

Eligibility: If, due to tardiness or absence, you become ineligible for certification, there will be no refunds. For Recertification or Bridge students, please note that that you are responsible to ensure your eligibility for these courses with Wilderness Medical Associates (WMA). If you arrive at your course and are determined to be ineligible for your course, there are no refunds. Contact WMA at 207.730.7331 or Adventure Risk Management for more information.

Due to policies of some facilities where our wilderness medicine courses are conducted, all registered participants must be 18 years of age to participate in a course, or the parent or legal guardian must be present throughout the course.

(If applicable to your course, you may either return unused textbooks & incur no cost to you, or you may keep them at the cost of the text plus any shipping cost.)
