There are absolutely no refunds for any product or service unless these terms and conditions are precisely followed. As Empire incurs costs associated with each registration, there are NO refunds for “mind changing”, no shows, or cancellations prior to the event.

We believe Empire’s refund and price guarantee policies to be extremely fair and eliminates your risk. However, the terms and conditions set forth above applicable to Empire’s refund and Price guarantee policies must be strictly followed for Empire to provide these no risk options for you. Industry standard is to provide no refund, period if a student is unable to attend. Typically, tuition fees may be transferred to another seminar date, or to another individual, however, no refund will be issued. Although we guarantee and believe in the quality of our services, we strongly encourage you to be certain of your decision to register prior to doing so. With over 100,000 physicians trained by Empire over the past 20 years, our objective is to continue to produce happy customers.
