All registrations are handled through our website. On enrolment, a tax invoice and tax receipt are issued immediately. Automatic reminders are sent one week before the event – and in most cases a text message is also sent the night before an OPD event.
- For celebrants who are not computer literate it will be possible for them to contact the office and have their registration processed over the phone. Our OPD Manager will be available to assist with the registration process.
Costs of each OPD event are clearly listed under each event. We offer a discount to Association members and to obtain that discount you must state your Asso and membership Number in the comment field on enrolment. Celebrants can choose to pay immediately online by using a credit card – on a secure site – using a current Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate. Alternatively they can choose to pay “Offline” – which means they are automatically emailed a tax invoice to pay directly into our bank account or mail us a cheque. Payment for the session will be expected in full prior to the session.
A refund of the OPD course costs will only be offered if we cancel or postpone a course for any reason. We will refund all monies paid for that OPD course unless we can make alternative course arrangements acceptable to the celebrant. A request from a celebrant to swap a session will be accommodated free of charge if we are advised in writing more than 10 business days before the original session. If that request comes to us with less than 10 business days notice the celebrant will be charged a $50 fee to cover costs to swap to another session. No refund is available for non-attendance at class without prior written advice. No refund is available for distance education courses once the material has been emailed or posted.
Every celebrant who completes a session with us, either face-to-face or distance education, will receive a certificate of completion for their own records. It is our responsiblity to ensure we notify the AGD of your attendance at OPD.
