If you wish to cancel your enrollment in a training, you may request for a full refund or credit by emailing [email protected] forty-five (45) calendar days or more prior to the Training Date. A refund will be issued in the same manner payment was received. A credit may be used towards an upcoming Foresight Essentials training that will take place within one (1) calendar year of the original session for which you registered, pending availability. You must notify IFTF of the new desired Training session within fourteen (14) calendar days of cancellation. No refunds or credits will be issued for cancellations received with less than forty-five (45) calendar days written notice.

If you have registered and paid for a Training, but can no longer attend, you may transfer your registration to a colleague working for the same organization for the same Training on the same dates. If you wish to transfer your registration to another individual, any applicable discounts (non-profit, educational, government, early-bird, etc.) may be voided and additional fees may apply. To request a transfer, email [email protected] forty-five (45) calendar days or more prior to the Training Date.
