1. Why should I pay a fee for this workshop when other workshops are free?
The difference about our workshop is the quality of the presentation and the trainer's ability to
communicate interactively with the audience. If you are taking the time to attend a training seminar
you want to know your time will be well spent. Many instructors may know (most) of the content
of the topic but they are unable to teach the subject to a diverse audience, because they occasionally
conduct a workshop. Mike does three or more workshop a week. He is able to adapt the point or
concept to the experiences of the audience and use examples to clarify to audience's understanding.
He is a certified special education teacher, a previous administrator of a large vocational rehabilitation
service and has conducted over 1,800 training seminars. He knows how to teach these topics in
To benefit from a training seminar, you should be able to apply the information immediately in your
work. Previous audiences have been able to do exactly that. Many professionals return repeatedly
to our workshops to enhance their knowledge and refine their skills.
We have offered a money back guarantee for over 8 years - that you will learn new information at the
workshop - and no one has requested a refund to date.
2. When is the last day to register for a workshop?
We accept registrations until seating capacity is reached. We highly recommend you fax in your
registration to reserve a seat and then send (or bring) your payment for the workshop. If your
organization has a lengthy approval process for your registration, you may wish to fax in the
registration form to hold a seat. You can always cancel the reservation if approval is not given.
You must cancel the registration by fax or e-mail prior to the workshop to avoid
expected payment for a reserved seat.
3. Can I switch locations after I register?
Yes, provided there is space available at the desired location. Contact us by phone or fax.
4. You offer one free registration for every three paying registrations. Can
they attend at different locations?
Yes, but the four people must attend the same type of workshop. The free registration offer is not
valid for two or more different workshops. For example: three attending the "Benefits and
Employment in 2007" and one attending "Beyond the Basics" is not covered under
the offer. These are two entirely different workshops.
5. Is lunch provided at a workshop?
No. Lunch is on-your-own. We will note on the schedule when there is an exception.
6. What is the proper attire at the workshop?
You should dress comfortably, jeans and sneakers are fine - and bring a sweater.
7. When is the registration fee expected?
Payment may be sent prior to the workshop or brought to the workshop. We can also bill
after a workshop is complete, but we require a purchase order number at the time of registration.
If your payment is made by credit card, we will not charge the workshop fee to the account until
the workshop is conducted.
8. Who should we make the check payable to?
Benefits Training and Consulting
9. Can you accept payment by credit card at the workshop?
No. We do not bring the equipment to the workshop to perform the transaction.
10. Do you offer Continuing Education Credits (or similar credits)?
There are a wide variety of credentialing groups, some specific to a state. Most of these
services require each of the workshops to be certified separately, thus it becomes cost-
prohibitive to accomplish this and still keep the registration fee within reasonable limits.
We will provide a customer, upon request, 1) a certificate of attendance; 2) course outline
and contact hours; and 3) speaker's bio. In the past, this approach has usually been
sufficient for the person to submit and receive credit from their credentialing agency.
