Because recordings are available for 60 days after the live airing, participants that experience technical difficulties during the live event (i.e. personal software malfunction, slow internet connection, user error, etc.) will not be refunded. It is also participant responsibility to ensure they have access to the recordings DURING the 60 day recording window. Failure to contact ICP before recordings expire will not result in a refund.

The short answer is – no.

As with any live event or conference, there will be a risk of last minute speaker cancellations, and this is a risk you make as a purchaser for a full weekend of presentations. 

In the event a speaker can no longer present at our conference due to unforeseen circumstances or changes in schedule, ICP commits to ensuring the session slot is replaced with another expert instructor leading a children’s mental health presentation.

Those who require a certificate of completion for individual courses stating specific content hours must pass a quiz to assess an adequate understanding of learning objectives within the presentation.

The quizzes will be linked directly under each session description in Hubilo, and must receive a 70% passing grade. It is participant responsibility to ensure the quizzes are completed within 60 days of the live airing – no extensions permitted.

*Not applicable for Keynote presentations.

We have been in good standing with Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, and become pre-approved for CEC’s through them. As we are not a formally accredited institution, we provide a certificate for professional development purposes stating the workshop content hours. However, you will need to apply directly with your governing body to ensure our workshops are eligible for any CEU’s, if it differs from the organizations we have gained pre-approval with.

Content hours that will be listed on the certificates used for professional development are as follows:
Half day workshops = 2.75 hours
Full day workshops = 6.0 hours

Only those who complete the related session quiz will be provided the certificate(s) stating hours for each workshop.

All participants will receive handouts that accompany the workshops (printed if you attend in-person only) but formal copies of the powerpoints are not sent out.
