Return Policy

Do you need to make a change to your order or request a refund? Select the product category below to read the applicable return policy or skip to the Refund Process.

In-Person

Refunds

We've expanded our refund policy to ensure participants are not concerned about losing their training investment when deciding if it is safe for them to attend in-person training.

  • Clients who have booked facilitator-led in-person training may push their training to a later date at any time before or during training. We no longer require five days' notice to transfer a scheduled in-person course to a later date.
  • You may cancel and receive a full refund up to five days prior to the start date.

If you do not have the necessary prerequisites for a course, you will not be able to participate and you will not be eligible for a refund.

Private Training

If you booked private/on-site training at your workplace, you are responsible for the quoted amount, even if fewer people attend than your quote specifies. You can change the number of participants up to 5 days before the scheduled start date of the private course. You will need to have a screen or wall to project onto and to ensure that the room is suitable for training (i.e. tables, chairs, sufficient space for instructor and gear) for on-site visits.

Transfers 

You may transfer your in-person training to a different person at any time before the training starts for no additional cost. Please ensure the substituted participant has the required prerequisites before transferring the course to them. 

Absenteeism / Late Participants

Participants who are over 15 minutes late for the start of the course or who are absent for more than 15 minutes on any day of a course may not be eligible for a certificate if this causes them to miss too much of the curriculum to successfully complete the course. Absenteeism during class time (e.g. not participating in activities) may result in participants needing to be rescheduled as activities and participation allow the facilitator to validate learning. In these cases, credits and refunds will not be issued but participants may register for another date when they can attend the entire duration of the course. There will be no additional cost to transfer the booking to another date for the first transfer. Subsequent transfer requests will be at full price.

Distance Learning Training

Refunds

You can get a full refund, no questions asked, up to 5 days before the scheduled start of your course or appointment. If you cancel within 5 business days prior to the start date, or if the participant does not attend, you will be charged for the full quoted amount. You can transfer your course to another name up until the course start date if the original participant is unable to attend at no additional cost.

If you book private training for your team, you are responsible for the quoted amount, even if fewer people attend than your quote specifies. You can change the number of participants up to 5 days before the scheduled start date of the private course. 

If you do not have the necessary prerequisites for a course, you will not be able to participate and you will not be eligible for a refund.

Transfers

You can transfer your course to another name up until the course start date if the original participant is unable to attend at no additional cost. Ensure the substituted participant has the required prerequisites before transferring the course to them.  If a participant does not attend a public training course, the full cost of the course will apply for rescheduling.

Absenteeism / Late Participants

Participants who are over 15 minutes late for the start of the course or who are absent for more than 15 minutes on any day of a course may not be eligible for a certificate if this causes them to miss too much of the curriculum to successfully complete the course. Absenteeism during class time (e.g. not participating in activities) may result in participants needing to be rescheduled as activities and participation allow the facilitator to validate learning. In these cases, credits and refunds will not be issued but participants may register for another date when they can attend the entire duration of the course. There will be no additional cost to transfer the booking to another date for the first transfer. Subsequent transfer requests will be at full price.

Cancellations by OSG

We do everything we can to avoid cancelling classes. Courses and appointments are only cancelled when there are circumstances beyond our control, such as a major snowstorm.  If it is unsafe for learners to travel to the training location, we will cancel the class. 

All participants are notified via email at least 1.5 hours before the course is scheduled to begin. The safety of our team and yours is of the utmost importance to us. In the event of a class cancellation due to circumstances beyond our control, you will be contacted on the same day to make alternate arrangements. If you cannot or do not want to make alternate arrangements, we will provide a full refund for the cancelled course or appointment.

Practical / Equipment Evaluations

You can cancel or change your practical evaluation appointment up to 5 days before the scheduled start date for a full refund. You can also transfer the appointment to another person’s name if they have completed the training or prerequisites that the evaluation pertains to.

Refund Process

Contact us to start a refund by emailing info@osg.ca or calling 1.800.815.9980. Our Client Success Team will ask you for your order confirmation number and other contact information to verify your eligibility for a refund.

If you have been approved to receive a refund, you can expect to see the refund show up on your credit card in 7-14 days after we have issued the refund. 

Refunds from Credit Card Transactions can be sent back only to the original payment method used in a charge. It’s not possible to send a refund to a different destination (e.g., another card or bank account).

Refunds to expired or cancelled cards are handled by the customer’s card issuer and, in most cases, credited to the customer’s replacement card. If no replacement exists, the card issuer usually delivers a refund to the customer using an alternate method (e.g., check or bank account deposit).
