The policy of deductions, delays and cancellations directly stems from the limitations of the size of the course and the number of participants. Since each participant in the course is also an audience for the other participants, there is a need for a sufficient number of participants to create a large enough audience. Also, since each participant must practice in front of the whole class, each lesson will have a limit on the number of participants. In order to achieve a balance between the two limitations, every effort will be made to reach a group with 15 participants, which is the ideal number for the group (given that participants are sometimes forced to be absent).

Late policy

Since the course involves the transfer of a large amount of material, and also requires a large amount of practice, it is important to arrive on time, especially since the beginning of most classes is used to review previous classes. There is no 'penalty' for being late, but practice cannot be guaranteed to a late participant. Also, a late participant will not be able to get a refund for the course if he is not satisfied

Deductions policy

Absences may significantly harm the student's progress, so it is recommended that every student who missed a lesson make an effort to complete it. There are 4 ways to complete a lesson, and they are (in order of effectiveness):

  • Reading the theoretical material on the course website - This is the minimum expected from those who missed a class, certainly not enough
  • Joining another group's class - a participant who missed a class is invited to join a parallel group's class, thus maintaining the momentum of practice. Participation is free of charge (limited to the number of participants) but prior notice is required.
  • Participation in the enrichment workshop - from time to time (usually twice a month) refresher and enrichment workshops are held for graduates. The students of the course can join these workshops at a significant discount (100 NIS for a regular fear of the crowd workshop) to complete a missed lesson or add an addition to the regular course.
  • Joining another course - students who missed more than two lessons in a row or three in total are recommended to finish the course with another group.

A lesson that was canceled because of the lecturer will be completed in the following session (ie the course will be extended by a week). And beyond that, an effort will be made to hold the meeting with a substitute teacher at the original time or with the same lecturer on another day Above and beyond to the quota of the course's lessons.

Cancellation Policy

In order to achieve an audience of an appropriate size, every effort is made to ensure the participation of an appropriate number, and especially to avoid over-booking. Therefore, the cancellation policy is strict and requires consideration in advance (those interested who want to be impressed are invited to visit, free of charge, another group's meeting). The terms of payment refunds are as follows:

  • Cancellation up to 72 hours from the start of the course - without penalty
  • Cancellation until the day the course opens - a cancellation fee of the price of the first 2 lessons will be charged.
  • Cancellation after the opening of the course is conditional on finding a replacement participant. Without a participant the full amount will be charged.

A participant who is forced to cancel his participation in the course will be able to complete the course with another group at a time of his choosing subject to considerations of space and availability.

If a course is canceled at the initiative of the lecturer, all participants will be refunded whatever amount they paid. As a principle, the collection policy is to charge the students only after the first lesson, and therefore this problem should not occur.

Refunds Policy

A participant who attends all classes in full, and is not satisfied with the course for any reason, can receive a full refund of the tuition within two months from the date the course ends.
