CPE Registration Information

REGISTRATION

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration fee for an 8 hour event includes the cost of eMaterials, instruction, lunch and breaks. 
 

All registrations must be accompanied by full payment, or government voucher before a seat is reserved in the course. The SCACPA does not invoice for the course registration fee. Payment may be in the form of a personal or company check, or charged to an American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or VISA.

CONFIRMATION

A confirmation is sent to each registered participant. The confirmation is computer generated and mailed or emailed after payment is received and processed.

If you do not receive a confirmation within 3-5 business days after registering, please contact the SCACPA office to confirm your registration. If you register late, you may not receive a confirmation before the course.

GOVERNMENT VOUCHERS

Government vouchers will be accepted if a complete registration form with a purchase order number and signature is received in our office before the course date. A credit card number is required to reserve your space when registering with a government voucher. If payment is not received within 30 days, the credit card will be charged.

All registrations should be received by SCACPA at least fourteen business days before the course. If a sufficient number of registrations have not been received by that time, the course may be cancelled. If this occurs, a full refund will be issued for those currently registered for the program.
