  • Registrations are accepted online via this website, by fax, and by mail.
  • Please note that registrations must be received at least 24 hours before a workshop begins.
  • Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis, therefore registering online increases your chances of getting into the workshop that you want. It is highly recommended that you register online versus by fax or mail.

What methods of payment do you accept?

  • We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express online, by mail, and by fax.
  • We also accept personal check, money order, and all four major credit cards listed above by mail with your completed offline registration form.

Is your website secure when entering personal data and credit card number?

  • We use PayPal®, an independent credit verification firm, to validate your credit card.
  • All communication with PayPal® is secure and encrypted by ipsCA.

Can I register at the door on the day of class?

  • Registrations require a minimum of 24 hours advanced notice for processing, therefore we are not able to accommodate walk-ins or same day registration.
