ASG Course Participation Terms and Conditions

(Revision February 2016)

Anderson Software Group, Inc. (ASG) offers Course Events for technical training given at University of Mary Washington University Dahlgren Campus. A Course Participant is anyone who purchases a Seat for a Course Event offered through the ASG website at All Course Event Seats must be purchased and paid in full before attending. Course Participants will be asked to provide the appropriate ticket for the specific Course Event on the first day of class. There are no refunds or reduced payments for no-shows.

ASG agrees to provide training as described in the online Course Event listing, with live instruction. ASG provides laptops for Course Participants for working through the hands-on exercises. The laptops are available only during class hours (typically 8:00am – 4:00pm) and may not be removed from the classroom. Every effort will be made to provide a laptop for each student, although at times it may be necessary for students to share laptops. Furthermore, Course Participants agree to not alter the software on the laptops, except for working through the provided in-class exercises. Course Participants also agree to not install any malware on the machines or abuse the machines in anyway. Course Participants may use their own laptops, with prior approval of the instructor. Approval depends on the particular Course Event and the software configuration required for the Course Event.

Cancellation of Courses

ASG reserves the right to amend or cancel any Course Event, Course times, dates or published prices. Changes to Course Event prices, times and dates will be advised before the Course Event start date and any Course Event already paid will not be subject to the increased price. As a Course Event may be cancelled up to four weeks prior to its start date, ASG recommends that Course Participants not make travel or accommodation arrangements before this time.
