REGISTRATION AND FEES: To register, complete and return the registration form with payment to the CPABC PD Department. Payment of seminar fees are due at the time of registration, as we do not invoice for seminar registrations. Cheques should be made payable to CPABC. We also accept Visa and Mastercard, but please DO NOT include your credit card information in any email correspondence. All registrations are subject to GST regardless of employer or employment status.
CONFIRMATION LETTERS: A confirmation notice will be emailed to the registrant within 1 business day upon receipt of registration. Online registrations should generate a confirmation immediately if the transaction was processed successfully. If you do not receive your confirmation prior to the course date, please contact the PD Department. The confirmation notice is provided as a courtesy - all assessments apply whether or not a registrant receives a confirmation notice.
SEMINAR LOCATIONS AND DATES: Seminar locations and dates are subject to change. Every effort is made to ensure that current information is available. Please check the PD website at http://pd.bccpa.ca for the latest information on the status of seminars.
SEMINAR REGISTRATION CANCELLATIONS, TRANSFERS & REFUNDS: All cancellations and/or transfers must be received in writing. Telephone notifications will not be accepted. Cancellations/transfers received at least 10 calendar days prior to the seminar date will result in a full refund. Cancellations/transfers received less than 10 calendar days but more than 2 full business days prior to the seminar date are subject to an administration fee of $50 for full and half-day seminars, or $25 for executive breakfasts and other 2-hour seminars.
Registrants who do not show up for a seminar, and/or who do not notify CPABC PD in writing at least 2 full business days prior to the seminar date (statutory holidays are not considered business days) will be assessed the full cost of the seminar. There will be no refunds or credits in this case. Substitution of attendee is permitted up to and including the day of the seminar (with the exception of Personal Passport registrations, where substitutions of attendees are not permissible under any circumstance).
Special terms and conditions apply to CPABC Executive Programs. Please refer to respective program policies on our website.
FLEXI PD PASSPORT REGISTRATIONS: Note that individuals using the Flexi PD Passport are providing consent to share that registration information with the "principal holder" (or official passport contact person) of that Flexi PD Passport.
COURSE CANCELLATION BY CPABC:CPABC PD may have to postpone or cancel seminars due to insufficient enrolment, in which case our liability will be limited to a refund of the registration fee. In the case of a PD Passport registration, our liability will be limited to restoring the PD Passport day used to register for the seminar – under no circumstances will the PD Passport fee itself be refunded, credited, or carried forward. Registrants will be notified by email one week prior to the seminar date if a seminar is cancelled. Members are urged to register early to ensure adequate enrolment.
SEMINAR LEADER SUBSTITUTION: In the event of a last minute scheduling problem, we reserve the right to substitute a fully qualified speaker who is not listed in the course description.
MEALS: Unless otherwise stated, lunch and coffee breaks are provided at full-day seminars, breakfast is provided only at executive breakfast seminars, and only coffee breaks (not lunch) are provided for half-day seminars. If you have allergies or special meal considerations, please let us know at the time of registration.
WEB-BASED SEMINAR TERMS & CONDITIONS: The registration fees for web-based seminars are payable at the time of registration. CPABC reserves the right to cancel seminars with insufficient enrolment. In such cases, a full refund will be made. Once a registrant receives their Login ID and Password to the web-based seminar, no refunds or substitutions will be granted.
