Registrations are taken up until noon the day before class is held.

Pre-payment via credit card or check. Checks and call-in payments must be received at least 2 days prior to class to ensure registration.  If paying by check, please make the check payable to Community Educators and mail to:

Community Educators, Payment Processing Center, PO Box 173, Decorah, IA 52101-0173.

It is our goal to provide excellent service to all, offering flexibility for your busy schedule; at the same time, mandatory courses and populated renewal months can create high, unpredictable last-minute demand, so we will honor registrations on a first-come, first served basis.

Thank you for your understanding.

Walk-in Registrations

Walk-ins are always welcome for location courses!  An additional $10 walk-in fee will be accessed for each class attended that day.  Please arrive ten minutes prior to class in order to complete registration forms.  Location information can be found on the self-registration tab, proceed to course listing, and click on the city/college hyperlink.  Call 1-800-747-7574 during business hours with questions regarding walk-in registration.

Course Cancellation Policy

We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule classes or substitute instructors/topics; in the this event, we will attempt to contact pre-registered students as soon as possible.  If you plan on being a walk-in, please call us at 1-800-747-7574 the prior business afternoon to confirm that class is being held as planned.  Thank you for your understanding.  We regret any inconvenience this may cause and we will do our best to help arrange other accommodations.

Refund Policy

Fees apply per person per course.  Course payments may be transferred to another scheduled course prior to the start time of registered course with no charge.  Courses canceled requesting a refund prior to the start time of registered course will be charged a $10 administration fee.  Courses paid for, but not attended, will be refunded, less a $20 processing fee.

Certificate Policy

We report your credits to the state on your behalf, as well as to the CFP Board and ClearCert, where applicable.  After completion of  a course, a Certificate of Completion  will be emailed to you the next business day to retain for proof of attendance. If you do not receive your certificate, check your spam/junk folder.
