WHERE DO I STAY DURING MY COURSE?

There are lots of options for camping and lodging near Train NEK – not just during your course, but before and after too! Extending your stay will enable you to take advantage of the great things going on in our region.

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 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 may prefer to audit.

WHEN DO I HAVE TO PAY?

Payment in full is due from individuals upon registration. Contracted groups/organizations can be invoiced following their 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.

We prioritize health and safety, and our cancellation policy is quite simple: anyone can cancel for a full credit or refund, minus any nonrefundable Eventbrite fee, no questions asked. (Eventbrite does not necessarily refund their fees if you cancel, even if it’s due to COVID, so we recommend sending a check instead if your plans are uncertain.) If you or someone in your home feels sick, we want you to stay home and take care of yourself so you can get well and get back out there soon!

WHAT IS YOUR PRIVACY POLICY?

All information provided to Train NEK via participant communications, registration, and payment will remain private and confidential to us and to SOLO, whose services are required for certification, attendance, and/or payment records. Train NEK never sells our customer’s information to outside parties. We do utilize Eventbrite’s registration services for the convenience of students choosing to pay by credit card; you can find Eventbrite’s Privacy Policy here.

WILL IT BE FUN?

You betcha’.
