    A Word about Refunds  

    Due to the increased demand for our classes, especially the childbirth preparation series, there can be no refunds granted for any cancellation requests received later than two weeks prior to the starting date of the class series. A Full refund, minus a $10.00 processing fee per class, will be given for cancellation requests received 2 or more weeks before the start of a class series. The purpose of this policy is to assure a fair and equal opportunity for everyone wishing to participate in our education programs. 

    Transfer Policy:

    Transferring from one class to another is discouraged. If it is prior to the 2 week cancellation window, you can cancel your registration online using the link in your confirmation email, and re-register for the class of your choice. However if you need to change a class less than 2 weeks out from the original class date, there is a $10.00 processing fee per class. To transfer in this 2 week prior situation please e-mail the Avista Family Life Education Department at AAHBirthED@centura.org or call 303-673-1029.
