Payment for all classes is required in advance.  Payment may be made through our secure online processing at any time prior to the class.  Payments (cash, check, or credit card) will also be accepted at the classroom prior to the start of the class.  


Refunds are available in full up to 72 hours prior to the start of your scheduled class. A seven-day notice in advance of the scheduled class is required for CHL New License class refunds.  Payments are normally not refundable if you fail to attend class; however, each case will be considered on an individual basis.
