1. Policies for Ordering, Cancelling Orders, Classes or Quizzes & Shipping Information:

If you just ordered an online class, materials will be mailed out using U.S.P.S. (United States Postal Service.) If you are ordering materials separately from class, to update your training, you must be in our current training program or you must be a past SmartPath LLC trainee for the exact same training. This policy adheres to our agreements with the Project Management Institute, Inc. Materials come with the class and we offer purchase to current or former trainees only, for materials replacement or to update your training only. Most orders will go out within 1 to 3 business days or less. To order quiz practice: Order the night before in order to start the next day or order earlier and provide us a start date please or we will start your quiz practice immediately. Please pay attention to "For SmartPath LLC trainees" only purchases. These are loyalty programs and apply to repeating the same classes at a big discount. There are also other discounts offered for new classes by SmartPath LLC's former trainees. Contact Nereda Haque, PMP and ask for more details. We provide coupons for classes where loyalty isn't already applied.

2. Refund, Returns and Cancellation Policies for Products, Training registration and software returns:

3. Product purchases: We offer 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back, within 30 days of purchase, except shipping and handling fees. Please get a return authorization number before returning any products. If you cancel an order after it has been shipped, return policies are the same as 100% money back satisfaction guarantee policies, less shipping and handling.

4. Software: No refunds on software except manufacture defects or if the shipping is lost. We currently don't ship or sell any software at this time.

5. Online Quiz Practice Subscriptions: These subscriptions have a start date and end date for the amount of time you purchased. We handle these subscriptions manually, so we can be sensitive to the exam needs of the trainees. Because our trainees have exams and cannot always get an exact date, we provide a few days of leniency to avoid practice cut-off for an exam. Otherwise, if you need more time, purchase an extension to your subscription before it runs out or simply re-subscribe when you are ready to do more practice. Extensions and subscriptions start at $39 for 15 days. The subscriptions are all licenses for the use of one person. You can use your quiz for unlimited hours or practice during the subscription period. All of our classes with online quiz practice have 30 days of free online practice with a specific start date. Most people don't need more than that. Plan your training dates so you can start your quiz practice at the end of your training. We don't provide free quiz practice to those re-sitting the training. If you want the quiz practice after 30 days of your original or retraining class, you will need to purchase it. Retraining classes are "do it again" training purchases after your free re-sitting has ended.

6. All Training Registrations for Onsite or Live Online Training: If you cancel your Training Class or any class 3 days in advance of the first day of training, you will have back the amount you paid for training less $100 service fee or you can reschedule another class at another time at no loss to you. Most people simply reschedule at no cost. If you cancel within less than 3 days’ notice, you will receive a refund minus $100 service fee or you can reschedule a class at no loss to you; except, if you cancel your class after 11 AM the day before your class begins, you will not receive a refund. However, you may still reschedule your training at no loss to you, instead of a refund, which is what most people do. If you miss any day/days of a class, you can make it up at another time without loss to you. Also, we do not refund or adjust the cost of the training you paid for if you do not complete your training. You have up to six months to complete your training from the time of your first class or the first class you registered for, should you require to reschedule. Anyone who decides to cancel a class, and loses $100, may ask for $100 off on the next class that they purchase. Note: if the exam is changing for the class portion that you missed, make sure you catch it up before it's too late. When an exam changes, you may not re-sit the class. You will need to purchase new training. Free re-sitting comes with the PMP, CAPM, PMI-PBA and PMI-ACP classes only. Free re-sitting is for up to six months or until the last class purchased by someone else, whichever is first.

7. 100% Live Online Cancellation Policy. 100% Live Online Training cancellation involves materials which are received ahead of class. If you cancel the training, you need to return the materials at your cost in good condition. Definition of good condition: If you have workflows, they should be unscratched, not creased, clean and free of writing. Also, the class book or books must be unopened if they are shrunk wrapped in plastic, and not written on, so they can be provided to another trainee, or an additional deduction of up to $75 in addition to the $100 for the class cancellation, will be made from the class refund. Please understand that we cannot give your materials to another trainee if they have been damaged or used in any way. If we send the materials out to you, you should know that you wish to take the training, and it's unlikely that you will need to cancel in order to avoid loss of funds, or simply reschedule your training which you can do at no cost to you. When an exam changes, you may re-sit for up to six months or until the last class purchased by someone else, whichever is first.
