Course Registration Policy | BIAW

Course Registration Policy


Classroom attendance is required. All classes will begin and end as scheduled. Attendees should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the session to verify registration and gather course materials. Attendees must sign in each day and attend the full duration of the class. Late arrivals or early withdrawals will not receive any applicable certification and/or continuing education hours. No refunds, partial refunds or transfers will be made due to missed class time.

Registration Policy

BIAW requests that all course registrations are received at least 48 hours prior to course date. Payment must accompany registration; attendee will not be allowed into the classroom without payment. Phone registrants must provide payment with MasterCard or Visa.

Cancellation Policy

BIAW reserves the right to cancel any class prior to the scheduled course. BIAW will not be held responsible for any travel reservations made if the class is canceled. The attendee will be offered either a full refund or a transfer to any other BIAW scheduled course. In the event of a last minute class location change or cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances, the attendee will be notified as soon as possible by phone, email and/or fax.

Refunds/Course Transfers

All course cancellations by attendee must be received by the BIAW Education Program no later than 48 hours prior to the scheduled start of the class to receive a full refund. Attendees will also be held responsible for the full course fee if the registrant is a NO SHOW and/or cancels with BIAW within the 48 hour cancellation period. You will be charged $25 if you are pre-approved to transfer to another class within 48 hours prior to the start of your initial course. No transfer is guaranteed.

Course Fees

The BIAW Real Estate School and the BIAW Education Program, in cooperation with our local association partner, establish course fees. These fees may vary based on expenses and anticipated participation. Fee information is available for scheduled classes on an individual basis. If you become a member of BIAW within 30 days of the course you attended, and notify the BIAW Education Program, BIAW will reimburse the difference between the non-member fee and the member fee.

Course Completion

Upon completion of the course test (if applicable), a certificate of completion for continuing education hours and CESCL card will be mailed to the attendee within 30 days. NAHB certificates may take up to 90 days.
