Cancellation Policy
ctc TrainCanada - We Never Cancel*:
We are unique in the corporate training field in that we do not cancel desktop applications courses due to low enrollment. When there are less than 3 students, ctc TrainCanada will personalize the class (students then receive more time with the instructor to address their individual needs allowing the student to complete the full course in less time) or connect the student remotely to a class at one of our other branches via TrainLive remote classroom instruction. *Microsoft Certified Courses and other technical courses require a minimum enrollment of three students. Business Skills courses require multiple students in order to run due to the interactive nature of the training. Selected Desktop Applications courses may require a minimum enrollment of two students to run. ctc TrainCanada® reserves the right to deliver Microsoft Certified and other technical courses via TrainLive remote classroom instruction in order to guarantee the course to run.

ctc TrainCanada Cancellation policy:
You may cancel or reschedule this registration in writing with no penalty with a minimum of 10 business days' notice prior to the first day of the course. Full payment is required if you cancel or reschedule this registration within 10 business days prior to the first day of the course. However, substitutions are welcome. If you do need to cancel or reschedule a publicly scheduled course within the 10 day non-cancellation period (not a client dedicated course), payment is to be made and a training voucher for a public course will be issued to you. This allows you to attend a future date for the same course at no charge (subject to availability).
No-shows will not be issued a training voucher.

Complimentary Service: We offer all our students coffee, tea, juice or pop, muffins or pastries in the morning and cookies baked in our own oven each afternoon.

We had taken Photoshop CS6 Level 1 on Nov 15 so knew essentially what to expect, even though what was initially supposed to be an “in-class instructor” session turned into a remote-instructed session. We got to the Level 2&3 training site ahead of schedule on Nov 17 and were settled in for the 8:00 start time. There were problems with the training immediately. • The instructor – Chris Motherwell in Ontario – was half an hour late logging into the “TrainLive solution.” • When he did log in, he refused to use the CS6 training manual that we had been given. • He had us spend time downloading his CS3 manual and labs, which took an additional 15-20 minutes. • CS3 was released in 2007 and is 5 years older than the CS6 manual version we were supposed to be training on. • There was no way for us to download the CS3 manual for use outside of the training session. • While we were getting set up he had everyone (6 students in 3 locations) open Photoshop and “follow exercise 3.1” of his CS3 manual – use the brush tool to put star shapes on a black background – for 30 minutes. No other instruction was given during this time. • Since we were doing this remotely, there was lag-time with my mouse. This makes it extremely difficult to do any of the fine detail work that Photoshop requires. It’s hard to place your mouse precisely when the cursor doesn’t move at first, then jumps around the screen with a half-second delay. We spoke to the people running Logical Choice several times and they were at a loss to explain what was going on. Their expectation was that we would be taught CS6, and we were provided with that manual. They tried contacting him and Last Minute training to sort things out but were having no luck. At this point we had wasted close to two hours and felt that it would be a long time before anything was fixed. The instructor would not want to change manuals as he wasn’t familiar with the CS6 version. Any training that could now take place would be rushed and we would not get the full benefit of the course. Frustrated and seeing no solution presenting itself, we left. We've had one good, and one very disappointing experience. We are booked to re-take this course at a later time. I hope it will be better with an in-class instructor.
