Terms & Conditions

Attendance, Missed Classes and Make-up Classes

A Student must attend all classes or make-up the class.

If a Student misses 1-2 classes, they can make-up the class by listening to the recording of the class they missed.

If a Student misses more than two classes, they may make-up their classes by paying a fee of $150.00 for a private makeup session for each class. If a Student misses more than 3 classes and is unable to make-up those classes, the Student will be asked to withdraw from the class and will have the option to transfer to a future class within 1 year.

Certification from Training Program

Students will only be certified if they fulfill the training requirements outlined in their training materials. Students must finish their certification within 6 months of their last class. If students wish to complete their certification from 6 months – 1 year, a $225.00 fee must be paid to Life Purpose Institute, Inc. and their Instructor will meet with them to complete the certification process.

If a Student wishes to be certified 1year – 3 years after their last class, a refresher course is required. Current fees for the class must be paid to Life Purpose Institute, Inc. If a Student attended the training program more than 3 years ago, a student will have to review the class again at a discounted rate or assist at a live 5-day class and complete the certification requirements at that time.

If a Student is enrolled in the ACTP program, they will be required to complete their certification within 1 year of the last day of their last program.

Payment Plans

Prior to beginning any course, a Student must make a payment in full or, have signed and agreed to a payment plan approved by Life Purpose Institute Inc. If a student drops out of a class for any reason, the Student will be held legally bound to finish the payments as agreed in the payment plan for the class.

Payment plans must be completely satisfied before a Student receives credit for their course, or the accompanying certificate of completion.

Delinquent Accounts

Should a Student’s account become delinquent (more than 30 days), Life Purpose Institute, Inc. reserves the right to take any or, all of the following actions:

  1. Assess a monthly late fee of $50.
  2. Withhold the certificate of completion until all tuition and course costs are fully paid.
  3. Withdraw the student from the training program with forfeiture of monies paid to date.

Policy for Refunds, Transfers and Cancellations

Make Up Classes, Refunds and Transferring

If for any reason, a Student is unhappy or dissatisfied, we request that the student notify the Instructor as well as Fern Gorin at fern@lifepurposeinstitute.com as soon as possible and provide specific feedback so that we can work on a solution, if any to resolve or improve the situation.

At the time of registration, there is a $500.00 non-refundable deposit that applies to all classes: Life Coach, Spiritual Coach and Advanced classes. For a student who is enrolled in the ACTP Track and drops from the ACTP Track after the Foundation Program, the Student is still responsible for paying in full for the Foundation Program plus $1,000.00 non-refundable fee for the remainder of the ACTP Track. All refunds will be issued less the applicable non-refundable fees. If a student wants to cancel, transfer or withdraw from the class a Student must notify Life Purpose Institute, Inc. in writing by sending an email to: fern@lifepurposeinstitute.com. This written notification must be done by midnight on the first day of any of our 5-day online or in-person classes or, by midnight on the first day of a class from the 3-month or 6-month program.

As each training class has limited seating and often sells out when students drop-out, it has taken a space that another student could have filled. As such, no refund of the entire fee for the class will be given after the first day of a class. A student who is on a payment plan and withdraws from a class after the first day of a class will be required to continue paying the payments until the full amount of their fees are paid.

In order to preserve the group dynamics of our small classes and get the full value of the training, it is strongly suggested that a Student remain in the same class and not transfer if at all possible. If a student wishes to transfer to another class, the transfer fee is $500.00.

If a Student requests their credit card company to refund them directly for the entire amount paid, Life Purpose Institute, Inc. will dispute the non-refundable deposit amount based on these Terms and Conditions.

Cancellation of Programs

Cancellations of our programs rarely happen but if or any reason a class is cancelled due to lack of enrollment, a Student will be notified 2 weeks prior to a class start date. Life Purpose Institute, Inc. will make every effort to offer another future date for the same program and if not, a Student will be refunded in full. If for any reason a class is cancelled due to an unforeseen emergency, Life Purpose Institute, Inc. will make every effort to offer another future date for the same program and if not, a Student will be refunded in full.

Class Materials

If a Student either chooses not to complete the certification program or does not successfully complete the certification program, Student may NOT continue using the Life Purpose Institute Program and Materials with clients in any way.

Termination and Disruption

If at any time during a class, Participant becomes disruptive or fails to act in a professional manner towards their Instructor or fellow students, (i.e., under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs, rude or violent behavior), Life Purpose Institute, Inc. will dismiss a Student and no refund will be given to the Student.
Life Purpose Institute, Inc. reserves the unilateral right to modify or amend the terms and conditions of this agreement as needed.
