Registration & Payment Policies
If you choose not to pay the full tuition amount for a course at the time of registration, we require a non-refundable registration deposit of $100 for each Birth Doula Workshop and BABE Course. Without this deposit, we cannot guarantee you a spot in the course.
Individual courses, registration deposits, and balance payments are not eligible for class package discounts. Paying a registration deposit only guarantees you a spot in the course for which you have paid the deposit.
The registration deadline for all classes is 1 week (7 days) prior to the first day of each course. This ensures that we have time to acquire and ship enough materials for each participant. Late registrations may be accepted for some workshops with an additional fee.
If you have paid a registration deposit, your remaining tuition balance will be due on Friday the week before the first day of your selected course.
Birth Doula Workshop tuition must be paid in full in order for you to receive the necessary completion certificates for DONA birth doula certification.
Tuition deposits are non-refundable.
A refund (less $100 deposit) will be granted only if written notification is received 4 weeks (28 days) prior to the first day of class. Refunds may take 5-10 business days to process.
We cannot grant tuition refunds after the 4-week deadline. However, your tuition payment may be applied to another ACBE workshop within 2 years. A retained $100 deposit may also be used towards another class within 2 years.
Occasionally, we have to cancel or reschedule a class due to low attendance. We require a minimum number of 5 participants per workshop, so if you plan to attend a class, we recommend that you register as soon as possible.
If ACBE finds it necessary to cancel a class, full refunds will be given to all registrants.
Early registration discounts for individual classes and class packages are automatically applied at checkout if tuition is paid in full 4 weeks (28 days) prior to the selected course.
We also offer group discounts for Birth Doula Workshops and BABE Courses. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Individual courses and registration deposits are not eligible for class package discounts. Registration deposits and tuition balance payments are not eligible for early enrollment or class package discounts. Paying a registration deposit only guarantees you a spot in the course for which you have paid the deposit.
