Each OnDemand registrant must have a unique e-mail address or user name. An e-mail or user name shared by individuals is not supported. Working Partners® is not responsible for delays caused by our hosting company’s downtime, either for maintenance or equipment failure. Only Microsoft Windows based computers are supported for courses. Any alternate devices (e.g., tablets, smart phones) are not supported as playback platforms. Due to the immediate nature of OnDemand 24/7 training, refunds, transfers or registrant changes will not be issued or allowed. All OnDemand 24/7 courses will be available to the registrant for a limited period of time, as explained in the course description. After the elapsed time, the registrant will need to purchase the course again if they failed to complete it in the time allowed.
4.1 Class Specific Requirements
In order to guarantee participation in a class, the purchaser must register and submit payment by the end of business on the Friday of the week before the class date. TOT participants must register and submit payment 10 days prior to the course date, because materials will be shipped to your business. Attendees of Drug-Free Workplace classes are strongly encouraged to bring a copy or have a copy of their corporate drug-free workplace program documents available during the class.

Class participation will close 15 minutes after the class start time for two-hour classes, and 10 minutes after class start time for one-hour classes.

The attendee must also be signed into the computer-based webinar software. An internet connection and telephone line are required to meet these requirements. Each attendee must have an individual phone line (no speaker phones) and a computer. Multiple attendees on one computer or phone line are not supported.

Cancellations made fewer than six business days prior to the beginning date of a course will not be refunded. No refunds will be issued after class materials have been shipped. In some cases, materials will be shipped prior to six business days and this will negate the possibility of a refund. No refunds will be issued after a class/webinar is completed.
