COVID-19 Concerns?

Unless there is a CDC or local government mandate against all nonessential travel, our ​upcoming Live Courses will be held as scheduled. Masking will likely be required either per CDC recommendations or per Dr. Barkley’s direction.

In the unlikely event that a course must be cancelled, we will accommodate attendees with an Online Streaming Course scheduled on the same dates as the Live Course.

Should a course need to be cancelled because of government regulations, most airlines and hotels credit customers for the balance to be used in the future. Most everyone will need a nice getaway once the COVID situation subsides.

Because sellouts are expected in all Fall Live Courses, please register early! If the Early Bird price has passed, please call our office for unadvertised discounts.

Terms: Live Courses

We guarantee that attendees will pass their initial national certification exam as long as the exam is taken no less than 3 weeks and no more than 3 months, after taking a Barkley & Associates’ Live Course or graduation (whichever comes last).

Barkley & Associates must be notified by email within 3 weeks of receipt of the score report. Upon notification, the student may choose to take a Live or Online Streaming Course for free within the next 6 months.

After purchasing a course, you will receive an Invoice and a PDF containing details of your course. Please be reminded to specifically check the email account that was used to register.

On-site registrations are accepted, if space is available, and will incur a $75 on-site registration fee in addition to the current course price.

Prices and exact course run times are subject to change at any time and without notice.

Once enrolled for a Live Course, an attendee may elect to transfer their registration to a different venue/city/date. To do so, the attendee must submit their request no later than 4 weeks prior to the first day of the applicable course. A $150 administrative fee is required to confirm the transfer.

All purchases are FINAL. No refunds will be made for course cancellations.
