How can I be guaranteed a course seat?

Once your registration is accepted and payment is received and approved you will be provided with a course confirmation number. If the class is full you will be placed on a waiting list.

What happens if I change my mind to attend after registering and receiving a confirmation number?

If there is a waiting list you will receive a full course refund. If your spot cannot be filled you will receive a credit for attendance at a future course. This credit will be valid for a two-year period. Thus, there will be no refund provided.
