Cancellations - Refunds - No-Shows To Practicum

The RMPI reserves the right to cancel a pre-cert course that does not meet the minimum enrollment requirements of six students per class. CME/MCE Courses have varied minimum enrollment requirements. Please contact for questions.

This course is non-refundable once the online passwords have been provided and/or live instruction has begun.

For employers who are concerned that an employee may not complete the program, purchasing the Pre-certification courses individually may be an preferred option.

Regarding Practicum course dates, the student may choose to attend another Practicum course date that has open enrollment and that has been not mandated as a private course by the course sponsor if they are unable to attend the desired, reserved course date with prior notification in writing. Students who “no-show” for a course have forfeited their participation in that course and are subject to re-enrollment fees to cover administrative fees, faculty fees, course materials, etc. They may also lose their right to dormitory housing being reserved for future dates if another student was turned away from attendance due to the reservation that was not cancelled within 30 days of the course date.
