Continuing Education & Community Workshop Policies and Procedures

*Important - Please Read Carefully*

Thank you for your interest in a workshop at PMTI!  Before you register, please familiarize yourself with our policies and procedures for continuing education and community workshops.


General Information

Our Workshops Coordinator monitors registrations across the week and can answer any questions you have about an event or your registration. Since many of our continuing education providers travel to PMTI long distance and require a minimum census in order to make travel worthwhile, it is our hope that you will commit early and uphold your intention to attend class.  For most workshops, we offer a discounted “early bird” price and a non-discounted regular price.  More detail about ticketing options is provided below.  Once PMTI has met the required minimum number of students to host each workshop, we begin processing payments.  


You may send workshop-related questions to  We also recommend that you add to your email contacts so that emails land in your inbox and not spam.

Complete and submit the online registration form.  Upon registering, you will receive confirmation to the email address provided.  Be sure to enter your email address correctly so that your confirmation and event reminder emails reach you!   In the unlikely event that do not receive an automatic email response confirming your registration or cannot locate it, you can check on the status of your registration by emailing or you may call PMTI's Front Desk at (202) 686-7046.

Policies & Procedures 

  1. All workshops have limited enrollment and registrations are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are unable to pay in full (either “early bird” or regular price), you may reserve your spot with a $100 non-refundable deposit.  To receive our “early bird” discounted tuition rate, the balance of your workshop fee is due by the early bird deadline.  The balance of regular price tickets is due no less than seven (7) days before the first day of class.  If the full cost of a course is less than $100, full payment is required at the time of registration. 

  2. Payments will not be accepted on the day of the workshop.

  3. Registration is considered confirmed once payment has been received and processed.

  4. Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive the allotted CE hours and/or Certificate of Completion.

  5. Community workshops are intended for any individual interested in massage, bodywork or holistic health. No previous experience is necessary unless noted specifically in the course description. 

  6. PMTI assumes no responsibility for any loss or damage to persons or property in connection with any workshop.


Early Bird Registration Eligibility

For most of our workshops, there are two payment options: a discounted “early bird” price and a full, non-discounted rate. To receive the discounted early bird rate, the full discounted payment is required before or on the day of the early bird registration deadline.  Each event listing indicates when the early bird pricing window closes.  If the full early bird price is not paid before or on the early registration deadline, you will then be responsible for the full, non-discounted price of the workshop.    


Cancellation/Refund Policy

To receive a refund (minus a required $100 or other non-refundable deposit), credit, or transfer, cancellations must be made at least seven (7) days prior to the first day of class.  No refunds, credits, or transfers will be given for any reason after that point.  If a workshop fee is less than $100 and the registrant cancels on or before the cancellation deadline, PMTI will issue a credit for the amount of the class on their account towards another workshop.


Please note: some of our continuing education instructors work for organizations whose cancellation and refund policies differ from those of PMTI.  In these cases, PMTI follows the policies of the instructor’s organization.


To cancel your registration for any continuing education or community class, please email


In the event a workshop is cancelled by PMTI, we will refund any registration fees to the Registrant.  We do our best to process refunds as quickly as possible, but please allow up to 30 days for refunds to be processed.


Sick Student/Emergency Policy

If you fall ill the day of a workshop or experience an unforeseen emergency, please call (202) 686-7046 and leave a detailed message with your name, phone number, email address, and the reason for your absence.  While we may not be available to answer your call personally, we appreciate hearing from you when “life happens.”  We will do our best to find a reasonable and mutually agreeable arrangement for helping you attend a future workshop.


We look forward to having you join us!
