Terms and Conditions Applicable to Registrants and Registration in Resource Environmental Associates Training Courses
IMPORTANT NOTICE: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE REGISTERING FOR TRAINING COURSES.
This is a legal agreement between the Registrant (defined as both the individual(s) attending the training, and his/her employer) and, (a) in the cases of courses held in the United States of America, Resource EHS America, Inc., a corporation registered in the State of Nevada, (b) in the case of courses held in Canada, Resource Environmental Associates Limited, a corporation registered in the Province of Ontario, Canada, (c) in the case of courses held in Barbados, Occupational and Environmental Hygiene Consultants Inc. (doing business as REA Envirohealth International), a corporate registered in Barbados, for the Registrant’s enrollment in and attendance at REA training courses, and use of REA training materials ("Training Courses" and "Training Materials" respectively). These three companies are collectively described hereafter as “REA”, and the agreement applies in respect of the Registrant-company relationship for the subject course and jurisdiction. By clicking on the "register" button on our registration page, you agree that you and your employer (where applicable) are the “Registrant”, and that these terms bind the Registrant.
Registrant Cancellations and Substitutions
Registrant cancellations received up to ten business days (excludes Saturday and Sunday) before the session are refundable, minus a registration service charge of $125 USD for courses in the United States of America, or $125 CAD for courses in Canada, or $100 BBDS/$50 USD for courses in Barbados. After that, registrant cancellations are subject to the full session fee, and you are responsible for payment even if you do not attend. Personnel substitutions and / or Registrant rescheduling to a later course date (up to three (3) times) may be made by the Registrant up to ten days before the course without penalty. REA reserves the right to cancel or reschedule sessions with five business days notification by e-mail, and in such event, the Registrant agrees that REA’s liability is strictly limited to a full refund of the Training Course registration fees that the Registrant has paid.
The Registrant agrees:
- not to copy the Training Materials or Training Materials except where such copying is incidental or necessary for the purposes of completing the relevant Training Course, and in doing so ensure that all copyright marks are preserved and visible on copies;
- not to rent, lease, sub-license, loan, translate, merge, adapt, vary or modify the Training Courses or Training Materials;
- not to alter, or modify, the whole or any part of the Training Course or Training Materials, nor permit their contents or any part of them to be combined with, or become incorporated into, any other materials;
- to supervise and control use of the Training Course and Training Materials; and
- to not provide or otherwise make available the Training Course or Training Materials in whole or in part, in any form to any person without prior written consent from REA.
Limitation of REA Liability
Information provided in the Training Course and Training Materials reflects what REA considers to be accurate and relevant to the subject matter as of the date of course delivery. The Training Course and Training Materials are intended to raise awareness and create understanding of the subject matter, but attendance at the Training Course and review of the Training Materials does not qualify the Registrant to perform specialized services to identify, evaluation or control risks to human or environmental health and safety that are the subject of the Training Course and Training Materials. Neither REA nor the instructor assume any liability for reliance placed on the information by course participants or other parties. Individuals and organizations are advised to obtain advice from appropriately qualified professionals specific to their own circumstances and needs.
The Registrant agrees that REA shall not be liable to the Registrant or its dependants, heirs, associates or successors for: harm to persons; damage to property or physical assets; loss of income; increases in costs; loss of business profits or contracts; business interruption; loss of the use of money or failure to realize anticipated savings; loss of information; loss of opportunity, goodwill or reputation; loss of, damage to or corruption of data; or any indirect or consequential loss or damage of any kind howsoever arising and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise; in connection with any information provided to the Registrant via the Training Course or Training Materials, nor in connection with any use of any such information by the Registrant.
Subject to what is provided above, the Registrant agrees that REA’s maximum aggregate liability under or in connection with its contractual and any other relationship with the Registrant, or any collateral contract, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, shall be limited to a sum equal to $500 US dollars.
Terms of Payment
Payment for Training Course registration can only be made using an authorized credit card or PayPal account. If special arrangements are made between the Registrant and REA for acceptance by REA of a Purchase Order or cheque / money order an additional charge of 5% shall be levied to cover processing and handling. In the event of any payment not being received by the Training Course date, an additional charge of 2% shall apply and be due and payable, effective the date of the Training Course. Unpaid accounts accrue interest at the rate of 24% per annum (2% per month, not compounded), calculated starting the date of the Training Course. Receipts for payment are provided in electronic format.

If we fail, at any time during the term of this Agreement, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations. A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default. No waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing.
Any notice required or permitted to be given by either party to the other under these terms shall be in writing. If any provision of these terms is held by any competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part the validity of the other provisions of these terms and the remainder of the provision in question shall not be affected thereby.
