The following payment "Typed in Black letters below" applies to all courses"
"Except the 4 week course" as follows: which requires Full payment to guarantee the 4 weeks and must be arranged ahead of time. Parcel payment does not guarantee or secure the 4 week course applying for on your application form. If other work has been scheduled within the Rigstar company before your full payment has been received, then you will have forfeited the initial dates applying for and you will have to arrange other days in aggreement with Rigstar and submit a new signed application form.

4 week course Cancellation terms:
Once Full Payment has been received, The 4 week course cannot be cancelled unless it falls under the stipulations set forth below under the "Uncontrollable Conditions" or unless other wise agreed upon by both "Rigstar and the Trainee" in writing and signed by both Rigstar and the Trainee. "Any payment toward the 4 week course is non refundable"

"The following payment terms apply to all courses" Except the 4 week course stated above in RED type:
Full payment is due at least 30 days before attending to guarantee a seat. We suggest you reserve a spot at least 30 days or more in advance since space will be limited to only 6 students for each class. Refunds will be sent out if notified at least 21 days in advance, in writing by certified mail only, of their class date, less $100.00 for administration costs. Fax or e-mail will not be accepted as a notice of cancellation from a participant, due to possible electronic problems. "No refund will be given there after the 21 day notice policy". "When a student starts the course, "No refund will be given once the class has started

You will not suffer the loss of the administration charge of $100.00 as long as you reschedule and your full payment has been made.
The $100.00 will be forfeited if you request your money back 21 days before the class starts.
If notice of cancelation is not given 21 days or more in advance prior to your schedule start date of the class,
you will forfeit the total amount, but you will have 2 months to reschedule a dates within the next 2 months
after your 1st schedule date. I will try to accommodate each person in a matter like this as best as possible.

Please note that no one is confirmed a seat unless full payment is cleared in our bank at least two weeks before
their schedule starting date that they picked. Out of state checks take about 5 to 7 business days to clear so you
would have to allow an additional week within the process totaling 3 weeks before your starting date.
To speed up the process it would be best to Fed-X a Cashiers check or certified bank Money order.
This we know is guarantied funds by a bank. I am sorry to say but we do not take any form of credit cards
or Purchase Orders at this time. Please do not send any cash through the mail.

Any one from outside the United States will have to transfer funds via bank wire transfer direct to our account and must be
cleared 14 days before attending the starting date of the class they have picked along with any bank surcharges or fees that
may occur to our account because of the wire transfer.

Uncontrollable conditions: The Rigstar Training and Testing Center and any employee will not be held responsible for any condition that may delay training due to adverse weather, power outage or sickness of a trainer beyound Rigstar's control.
All reasonable efforts will be taken by Rigstar Training and Testing Center to reschedule lost time in a class due to uncontrollable conditions as stated but will not be liable for any additional expenses that a student may incur.

Day Course Time Schedule may be altered in any given day: Please Note that the start times and end times may change during the course week due to prior commitments or other obligations that the instructor may have.
So if a class day ends earlier than normal then the start time the following day may start earlier or may go longer to make shure you receive all the time needed
to complete the full course training. There is always extra time allotted during the week days as well as the weekend to make up any behind time that may happen.
