Cancellation Policy

The workshop date may not be rescheduled in the event of a last minute request to rearrange scheduling. If a workshop is cancelled without make-up available then 50% of workshop meeting cost is still due to PMT. If PMT Staff is ill then arrangements will be made to hopefully provide coverage by another PMT Staff Member. If not, then club will have make-up date. Failure to give 24-hour notice as outlined above will result in a “No Show” fee being added to your account. Your instructor will wait at least ten minutes after the scheduled workshop time, before declaring the meeting a “no show.”
