Course Enrollment and Cancellation Policies | Modern Sailing

Course Enrollment and Cancellation Policies

In order to ensure that every student receives the best education and most positive experience, we have a few enrollment and cancellation policies that we are asking everyone to follow. These policies apply to anyone enrolling in a course regardless of how they paid or the amount they paid. For example, a client who purchased a Basic Keelboat Sailing Gift Certificate from an auction, is subject to the same policies as someone who paid Modern Sailing full price for the course.

 

Enrollment Policies

  • Students must meet the pre-requisites, or complete a challenge.
  • Courses are for adults only - students must be 18 years old to participate. We occasionally offer a Teen/Adult course for students 14 years and up, however he or she must be enrolled in the course with a parent or guardian.
  • To secure a spot in the course, students must pay the tuition in full.
  • Modern Sailing will allow students to enroll in an ASA 103 course prior to the completion of ASA 101. If the student does not pass ASA 101 prior to the first day of the ASA 103 course, no rescheduling fee will be charged.
 

Course Cancellation Policy

  • If you cancel with greater than 30 days notice from the first day of your course, you will get a full refund.
  • If you cancel 29 - 15 days prior to the first day of your course, you will get a 50% refund.
  • If you cancel 1 - 14 prior to the first day of your course, you are not eligible for a refund.
 

Course Rescheduling Policy

  • If you need to reschedule your course before your course has begun, you can do so at no additional charge if you provide 30 days notice or greater.
  • If you need to reschedule within 29 - 15 days of the first day of class, you must pay a $250 rescheduling fee.
  • If you need to reschedule within 1 - 14 days of the first day of class, you must pay a $375 rescheduling fee.

 

If a Student is unable to finish a course

  • If a student is unable to finish his or her course once it has begun, they can either be a last minute drop in to a future course at no additional charge or they can reserve their spot in a future course for a rescheduling fee of $375. Drop in students will be added to a course no sooner than 48 hours prior to the first day of class.

 

Low enrollment Cancellation Policy

  • If the class minimum is not met, the enrolled student(s) will be given the option to reschedule or a full refund. ASA course enrollment cancellations are made 7 days prior to the first day of class.

Testimonials

  • Ray Arceneaux

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.

  • John Kratochvil, Oregon

    I would like to compliment Stan Lander for his coaching, counseling and teaching Heavy Weather Offshore Sailing. Stan was very accommodating to all of the student's interests and shared his many years of insight on handling the boat in heavy seas. I would certainly recommend Stan and this course to sheltered waters sailors. My confidence in handling a boat of this size was certainly enhanced by the experience.

  • Mike, Santa Rosa, California

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.
