PREPARATION:  Students and those registering students:  You must read this entire document and be prepared for class.   Regretfully, time constraints do not allow for accommodation of significant disruption or delays in class to assist individual students arriving for class without preparation.  Consider:   

  • failure to secure the required publications and have them ready for use in class.  Implications:  we cannot spend significant time during class assisting students with retrieving the supplied .pdf of the book or books.

  • failure to test your computer equipment and ensure its working order before class begins.  Implications:  The entire class relies on every student showing for class with his or her equipment ready to use.  We cannot spend class time addressing technical issues for individual students.

  • failure to have a PERC account set up before class -  with delay of exams resulting.  Implications:  Secure your individual PERC account before class.  Arrive for class with this already done.  We cannot spend class time addressing this for individual students.

  • failure to have a working camera and working microphone as class begins. Implications:  Camera and microphone and speakers/headset are essential to participate in class.

  • Use a Desktop computer, Laptop computer or Tablet.   We do not recommend the use of a Smartphone for general class sessions.

We reserve the right to release from class any student showing for class but not prepared to participate without delay.  In that event, the student and company will forfeit the fees for the class.


CETP ORDER: In Order or Out of Order?:   The CETP curriculum is intended to be taken in sequence, meaning you take Book One, followed by the subsequent “books”.   We have had students take CETP “out of order”, meaning, for example, a student took 2.2 Bobtail BEFORE he or she had completed Book One Basic Principles.  Our experience has been a mixed bag:  some ace the exam and class;  others struggle keeping up and have failed the exam as a result.  

Therefore, we do not encourage taking CETP out of order.   The knowledge from Book One is essential to the Books that come after Book One and taking CETP “out of order” has created issues, including but not limited to slowing down the entire class at the expense of others, insufficient absorption of the material and failure of the exam for a subsequent book.  Should a student take CETP out of order, he or she does this at his or her own risk and we reserve the right to end a student’s session if he or she causes disruption of the class for others.   You, as the student or the person registering a student, agree to and acknowledge the
