Additionally make sure to meet our required level of water fitness, among other criteria stated in the course’s Terms & Conditions. Anyone NOT meeting these criteria these will receive a printed “Proof of Attendance” instead of the certificate, still eligible to apply for educational points.
We advise you to plan you travel times to arrive at the course location before the first course event and to leave without stress at earliest on the evening of the last course day. Ideally you leave the day after, so you’ll have the chance to celebrate your successful completion of the course at our legendary closing party.
Please note that anyone being absent during the course will NOT get the full course certificate. Instead you will receive a printed “Proof of Attendance”, still eligible to apply for educational points. In order to receive the Advanced Surfing Medicine Life Support course certificate participants need to fulfill ALL the criteria as stated in the course’s Terms & Conditions.
Of course anyone can cancel her/his reservation at any time. As we usually already have some people on the waiting list, your place being assigned to someone else will make her/him happy. In that case that your place will be inherited by someone on the waiting list, as soon as she/he paid we will refund you 100% of the course fee.
However, if your course place can not be assigned to someone, our refund policy can be found in the ASLS course’s Terms & Conditions.
While we would love to get to know your wife/family, the course program will be quite packed. From the past year’s we have learned that ASLS™ course + surf + family might get pretty ‘intense’. Also, the available space on the venue & locations is perfectly fitted to the participants + instructors + ASLS™ team leaving few to none space for extra guests. However, if you still wish to bring your beloved ones along, we sure could arrange something. Let us know.
