Attendance, Class Cancellation & Refund Policy

The student must not miss the first day of class and/or more than 20% of the class duration. First day in class is critical as it lays the foundation of the discussion and activities for the following days

If a student cannot attend any class on the given schedule, the student should notify PCCI five (5) days prior to the class. The student can then choose an alternate schedule for the same class, subject to seat availability, and a PhP 500 rescheduling fee.

Below is the Refund and Forfeiture Matrix:

At least 30 Days Prior to the Start Date Full Refund
5-29 Days Prior to the Start Date Non-refundable, but will be converted to a full class voucher equivalent to the payment made, which may be used for other PCCI Offerings; or may be transferred to another student (provided an authorization letter accompanies the substitute.)
Less than 5 Days Prior to the Start Date Non-refundable, non-transferrable to another student, but can be rescheduled for the same class for a PhP 500 rescheduling fee.
Failure to notify PCCI of his absence (No-Call / No-Show) Forfeiture of Class Registration

Note: Occasionally, we are forced to cancel a class because of low enrollment or emergencies. In such cases, participant who will not transfer or can't wait for the new schedule can get the full refund.

Issuance of Certificates

Certificates of Attendance or Completion are awarded to students who have attended 100% of the class duration.

Instructor Replacement

On rare occasions, a listed instructor is unable to teach a class due to an unscheduled professional assignment. If this happens, we will replace the instructor with someone of equivalent credentials. In the event we cannot secure a substitute, the class can be rescheduled or cancelled.

FREE Lifetime Refreshers

If you do not master all the skills and techniques the first time, you may retake the same course, unlimited, free of charge, on a space-available basis.

Note: Refresher class and snacks are free but lunch is no longer included. Student needs to bring their old handout, or purchase the new one, if any.

Protecting Your Investments

Should any staff employee we have trained leave your company within six months following their class, PCCI will provide the same training for their replacement for FREE, if booked within a year of the initial registration, provided that it’s not a customize course.
