WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE TO PARTICIPATE IN A TRAIN NEK COURSE?
The minimum age to participate in certification courses is 16, or as young as 14 for WFAs, with advance parental and Train NEK permission. Please note that in order to become certified, an individual must demonstrate their ability to respectfully perform the necessary patient physical exam on others, as taught in the course. Certificates of Completion are available for anyone who prefers to audit.
CAN I EARN COLLEGE CREDIT?
Yes! SOLO is partenered with Sterling College to offer college credits. Email us at Info at TrainNEK dot org for details and paperwork.
CAN I USE AMERICORPS OR 529 QUALIFIED TUITION aka “College Savings” FUNDS TO PAY?
Yes! Email us at Info at TrainNEK dot org for details and paperwork.
HOW DO I HOST A TRAIN NEK COURSE?
Want a different location or dates than you see listed? Would a course closed to the general public work better for your group? Consider hosting your own course!
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
Courses hosted by Train NEK with at least two participants registered 48 hours prior (you need a patient and a rescuer, after all!) will run in all but extreme weather or circumstances.
Our cancellation policy is quite simple: anyone can cancel for a full credit or refund, minus any nonrefundable Eventbrite fee, no questions asked. (Eventbrite might not their fees if you cancel, so we recommend sending a check instead if your plans are uncertain.) If you’re sick, we want you to stay home and take care of yourself so you can get well and get back out there soon!
WILL IT BE FUN?
