Complaint: I was registered for a course scheduled from Oct 29th to Nov 2nd. The course was cancelled a few days before the 29th. I was given an options in an email to sign up for a future date or accept a refund.I emailed asking for the refund option but the only response I have received so far was that they were out of the country.I have attempted numerous times calling the instructors and sent a few emails but I have yet to receive a response.I understand that they may be legitimately out of the country, but as a business, there should be a system in place where they can keep in communication with their students.
