There are no hidden fees. One registration per person. Each person must register themselves for the course. No course admittance will be allowed without showing receipt of registration upon arrival at the course facility.

Please include the course title, date, and time of the course in your email. Refunds will be returned via the same payment method used for registration.

If for some reason the course cannot take place on the intended date, all registrants will be notified by OTJO via the email address provided at registration. The course will either be rescheduled as an in-person course for a later date or postponed indefinitely (given any unforeseen circumstances like threats to public safety due to the COVID-19 pandemic). After receiving notification of cancellation/reschedule/postponement, registrants may choose to transfer their registration payment to the rescheduled/postponed course or they may opt for a full refund. Refunds will be returned via the same payment method used for registration.
