Important Registration Information: 

CPSI requires course materials are mailed 3-4 weeks in advance of the course to allow participants time to complete the pre-reading assignments prior to attending.

As a result, the deadline to register or make changes to an existing registration, including transfers and refund requests, must be made on or before the 45th day prior to the course start date. 

All refunds are subject to a 25% administrative fee.

No shows and last minute cancellations forfeit all paid registrations and/or are responsible for full payment of registration.  APRA is required to provide a guaranteed number of participants in advance and must adhere to national deadlines.
