Cancellation Policies

The American Institute of Balance (AIB) is dedicated to customer service and quality continuing education. In hosting both on-site (Largo, FL) and off-site workshops, we will do our best to avoid workshop cancellations. Please understand that certain circumstances (adverse weather, natural disasters, travel delays) are not within our control.

All registrant requests to cancel an AIB Workshop or to transfer to another AIB workshop must be sent from the contact form on the AIB website (dizzy.com/contact-us/).

HYBRID Course Cancellations

Once purchased, there will be no refunds or cancellations. Participants will receive all enduring materials upon registering and will have remaining access to all content as a certified member.

HYBRID Course Transfers

TRANSFERS

Transfers are only allowed 14 or more days before the workshop.

If transfer is requested within the 14-day window before the workshop a $150 fee charge will apply.

Up to 3 free of charge transfers. Any transfer after that an $150 transfer fee will be applied for each additional transfer.

NO SHOWS
Registrants who do not show up for a course have 3 calendar days to contact AIB to reschedule the missed workshop. At that time, registrants have the option to transfer to another date/location for the live course, and a $250 transfer fee will apply. Registrants who do not notify us within the 3 calendar days of their absence will forfeit the 1 day live hands-on component certification.

Policy on Certification, Attendance, and CEUS

I have read and understood AIB’s workshop eligibility policy for attendance, certification, and CEU approval. AIB reserves the right to deny participants’ eligibility to attend workshops, receive CEU credit, and/or certify if not eligible. AIB Certification does not supersede an individual’s professional scope of practice as determined by their governing professional Association, Society or State License.
