Late Policy

If you arrive more than 10 minutes after the start of the class, you will not be permitted to complete the class and obtain certification.  You can sign up and pay for another class at a later date. However, you will not receive a refund for the class you missed.


Refund Policy

Refunds or transfers to other classes are not allowed when the course is less than 48 business hours in advance for most courses (instructor-level courses or other courses that require online prerequisites will require a full week's notice). Once a course has started, we cannot offer refunds (including students failing an online or in-person prerequisite). Cancellations and transfers made 48 business hours in advance will result in a $20 administrative fee. Refunds are not given when participants fail prerequisite testing or have started prerequisites. 


Waitlist Information

If a class is full, then you can be added to a waitlist. If spot(s) become available, we will notify participants in order of the waitlist. Oftentimes, openings happen at the last minute, so if you end up on the waitlist, please know that you may be called on the day of the course.


Courses Available by Request

Do you need to get multiple people or your staff certified? We can schedule a class that will fit your schedule and needs. Class minimums will vary based on the course you need. If you are interested in this, please email recaquatics@utsa.edu for more information.
