International Academy of Consciousness

Terms and Conditions

 

  1. Participation
    1. All participants must pre-register with payment in order to guarantee a place in our Consciousness Development Program (referred to from now on as CDP).
    2. All CDP Registrations are personal and non-transferable. Enrollment in the online CDP is personal and not transferable; therefore, transmission of the course is exclusively for the person duly enrolled. There is an option to share the course with family members*, and in such cases there is a 15% discount for any additional participant. However, said participant(s) must register in the course as well. This way IAC ensures their participation in any advanced courses with prerequisites. *Family members are defined as relatives in the first degree (parents, siblings, partners or direct descendants who live at the same billing address). For a group discount or for non-family members, contact us directly.
    3. People not recognized/verified as registered, will not be able to access the online course.
    4. Children under the age of 18 must have written parental authorization in order to participate in the Program. When enrolling in a CDP that takes place in person, rather than online, the parent or guardian must accompany any child under the age of 15.  Children under the age of 10 may be allowed to be in the class (depending on the child’s behavior)
    5. IAC reserves the right to refuse any participant at any time, at the sole and internal discretion of the IAC, either prior to enrollment or asking him/her to leave during the program, for reasons deemed justified and reasonable by IAC. These measures are set for the appropriate course flow thus avoiding disruptive or inappropriate behaviors or actions, which may affect the learning environment, the class objective, or preventing participants from taking advantage of the information.
    6. If an enrolled CDP Online participant cannot participate in the Program on the registered date, the IAC must be notified at least five (5) days prior to the start date of the course via email at [email protected] In this case, the IAC will grant the student the right to participate in a future CDP Online, of their choice. If the participant enrolled for the In-Person CDPand cannot participate on the date for which they enrolled, they must inform the IAC at least seven (7) days in advance. The IAC will grant the right to choose whether to participate in a future CDP Online or wait for a future CDP in person. Participation in either format will be subject to the availability of places in the chosen CDP in question. Note: If the participant, is not able to comply with the prior notification period, due to compelling reasons/circumstances or force majeure, he/she must report this unavailability as soon as possible.  IAC will then analyze the situation and determine a solution accordingly.
    7. In order to take full advantage of the information, participants should not miss any classes in the Program. However, certain absences described in the following item, may be allowed. These missed classes must be made up and only then is it possible to attend the following classes. These exceptions do not apply to the first and second class of the CDP as they are fundamental classes for the Program and are strictly required.
    8. CDP Online: A participant may be absent for up to 2 (two) non-consecutive classes, and remain in that sequence (i.e. with that same cohort of participants).  IAC will grant the possibility to make up for the respective missed classes on the next CDP. Note that each day of the Program equates to 2 classes or, in some days, 2 classes and 1 session of questions and answers. Therefore, if a participant misses an entire day, he/she will not be able to continue in that cohort, since missing this information would compromise the course’s effectiveness. However, IAC will provide the opportunity to attend the missing classes in the next CDP Online. In this case, the participant should inform [email protected] on which date he/she wishes to take the classes. Participants will have a period of up to 10 (ten) months to take the missed classes, free of charge.
    9. CPD in person: The first five classes will be available by streaming and the following classes and practical exercises will be conducted in person. The participant must be present for 75% of each module and may be absent up to 1 (one) class per module only, in order to stay in the Program (with that cohort of participants). If more than 1 (one) class per module is missed, the participant will not be able to continue in that sequence, especially if theoretical classes were missed, since missing information would compromise the course’s effectiveness. In any case, the IAC will decide on a case by case basis the possibility of granting the reinstatement of the missed classes in a future CDP. In these cases, participants should inform [email protected] on which date(s) they wish to take the missed classes and must await confirmation. A response to the request will only be possible closer to the date of the new CDP depending on availability. The student has up to 2 (two) months from the date when the class(es) were missed to contact the IAC. Replacement of classes free of charge will not be possible after 6 (six) months from the date the class (es) were missed.
    10. Active IAC members (IAC Membership Program participants) and CDP participants who have completed the CDP may repeat the CDP at a discount of 75%-100% (see more on item 4: About granted discounts).
    11. IAC reserves the right to change the dates and times of the CDP or classes at any time. Such instances will always be exceptions, but if this is the case, all registered participants will be informed via email. The IAC’s online page will keep the updated information for all those interested.
    12. The class schedule will reflect the time zone of the course. To get your local time, please visit https://is to make sure you are on time for the classes.
