QUESTIONS

  • When do the live sessions take place for the PREMIUM course?

Monday night at 8:30 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific). Each meeting lasts 1 hour.

  • What type of payments do you accept?

Currently we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and check cards (as long as they are connected with one of the major credit card companies listed above) as well as PayPal.

  • Your information is safe and secure.

In order to ensure security, all payments are processed through Authorize.net or PayPal. These are highly secure and use industry-leading technology (such as SSL) to keep your information safe.

  • Can one person enroll in the course and multiple people attend the Zoom session with the student?

Unfortunately, due to copyright, privacy and security issues the answer to this question is NO.  We understand the desire to share these awesome sessions in this manner, but each course is a “closed” course.  This means that each student enrolled in a course with LIVE recorded sessions, through their enrollment, has given permission for recording of the Zoom sessions for use by the student’s in their enrolled class ONLY and verified that they are not a minor.   To remain GDPR compliant and protect privacy and security, we authenticate each student joining our Zoom meetings. This privacy is also sought to create a place where our students get to know the others in their group and feel comfortable in sharing personal thoughts and questions.
