WHAT IS THE PROPER ATTIRE?
"Business-casual" attire is appropriate for all MIS Training Institute programs. The temperature in many training facilities can vary greatly throughout the day. We advise that you dress in layers in order to be comfortable as the indoor climate changes.
DOES MISTI PROVIDE REFRESHMENTS OR LUNCH?
For our Seminar programs a continental breakfast (coffee, tea, juice, and breakfast breads) is available at 8:00am daily. There are also mid-morning (coffee & soft drinks) and mid-afternoon (soft drinks & a snack) refreshment breaks daily. Unless otherwise indicated, lunch is not provided as part of the program. There is a break for lunch each day usually from 12:00PM - 1:00PM. Your instructor or facility personnel can help with suggestions for lunch options within short walking distance of the seminar venue.
For Conferences and other events please refer to the brochure or website for details on times of continental breakfasts, breaks, receptions, and lunch offerings.
ARE THERE ANY "AFTER-CLASS" ACTIVITIES PLANNED?
Yes. For our Seminar Programs your instructor will host an informal social hour from 5:00PM - 6:00PM after class on the first day. This is a great opportunity to unwind with your fellow classmates and to expand your personal network. We hope you will plan to stay for this social hour. For our Conferences and most other events there are usually multiple networking and after-class activities planned. Please referee to the brochure or website page for that program for more details.
WHAT ABOUT TRAVEL AND HOTEL RESERVATIONS?
In some instance we do reserve a room block at some hotel venues. This information will be on the registration information page of the event. In the instances we do not offer a special room rate we have found that most attendees prefer to research the other discount options available such as AAA, AARP and “Web” rates through discounted sites. MISTI does not make travel and hotel reservations for their attendees.
WHAT ARE MISTI’S CANCELLATION POLICIES?
MISTI makes every effort to run all of the scheduled programs as advertised. In the instance that MISTI does cancel or reschedule an event we will give you as much advance notice as possible. Your tuition fee can be either held on account or refunded if MISTI cancels the event. MISTI is not responsible, however, for penalties incurred as a result of discount hotel reservations or air fare purchases.
If you have to cancel your registration a full refund, less an administrative fee of $195, will be issued if your cancellation is received in writing up to 15 days before the event date. Your registration fee is non-refundable if you cancel less than 14 days before the event and the cancellation fee of $195 also applies. If you wish for a colleague to attend in your place for the same event, there will be no cancellation fee applied. If you do not cancel and you do not attend, you are responsible for the full registration fee.
ACL Certified Courses: If you have to cancel your registration a full refund will be given for cancellations received up to 22 days before the event. Tuition is non-refundable for cancellations made 21 days or less before the event. You may, however, transfer your tuition to another MIS Training Institute event, less a $250 administrative fee. Transfers are valid for 12 months from the time of initial cancellation. Substitutions are welcome at any time. Those who do not cancel before the event date and who do not attend are responsible for the full non-refundable, non-transferable tuition.
If you are a PERC member, you may cancel any event registration without penalty at any time up to five (5) business days prior to the start date. Cancellations made less than five (5) business days but at least one business day prior to the start date are subject to a $100 deduction from the PERC account. Those who do not cancel and do not attend will forfeit the full course fee.
ARE THERE OTHER PROGRAMS HAPPENING THE SAME WEEK?
MISTI does hold “Training Weeks” that offer multiple programs in one location during a one week time span. You can view more information about ways to save here. You may wish to check the MIS Course Catalog or go to www.misti.com to see if there are any other MISTI programs running the same week as the program you will be attending (either before or after) which might also be of interest to you. If so, please contact our Customer Service or Telesales staff to register and to find out about multiple course discounts.
ARE TEAM DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE?
Seminars: If 3 people register for the same seminar on the same date, each saves 10% off the seminar fee. All registrations must be made at the same time and paid for together. Attend consecutive seminars in the same week and save 10% off both seminars. Discount offers cannot be combined. Please call Customer Service at 508-879-7999 ext. 501 for more information regarding seminar and conference discounts.
Conferences: For conferences, there are specific group discounts available that may vary. Please refer to the specific conference’s website registration page for discounts.
WHAT IS A PERC?
PERC (Preferred Education Rate Contract) is a discounted program designed for companies that need to train diverse staff in a number of different areas. By purchasing training in bulk, organizations can save 10-20% on the cost of public training. For more detailed information about PERC, call Customer Service at (508) 879-7999, or e-mail email@example.com.
