Welcome to our Terms of Service page. By using our services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Everblue does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, marital status, age, disability, or any other factor prohibited by law in the recruitment and admission of students, the operation of any of its educational programs and activities, and the recruitment and employment of faculty and staff. Everblue’s Finance Manager serves as the compliance coordinator for Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex or handicap.
Enrollment & Deposits
Everblue operates short-term continuing education courses throughout the year. Rather than paying the full tuition amount at the time of registration, many of our courses offer the opportunity for a registrant to place a deposit at the time of registration to hold his or her seat. In the event a student places a deposit on the course rather than paying the full tuition amount, the student will not be placed on the roster, allowed in the classroom, or provided any study materials until full payment is provided.

Course materials are included in the course tuition. Students will be able to access their course materials in their online Everblue student accounts. Course materials include, but are not limited to the following: digital workbooks, practice questions, take-home solar kits, study sheets, provisional HERS ratings, software simulations, and certificates of completion. Everblue's digital workbooks are accessible on all laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Students may purchase a full-color print version at an additional cost by calling 800-460-2575. Students will not gain access to these course materials until their full course tuition has been paid.

Travel, Lodging, and Other Expenses
In the event that a class does not reach the minimum required registration (6-8 students for most classes), Everblue bears the right to postpone courses given that students have a week of notice. Everblue must postpone courses when student registration does not reach the minimum required amount. In the event of a course postponed, students are provided with alternative dates to transfer into. If you must book your travel arrangements (ie, airline travel) more than a week prior to the class start, please contact Everblue to ensure that the course has met minimum registration requirements.

Everblue provides a certificate of completion to each student once a live course session(s) has expired. Attendance will be taken to prove that the student was present for the majority (over 50%) of the session(s). Everblue's certificate of completion may serve as proof of one’s attendance in a sustainability training course. This process works the same for Everblue webinar sessions that are pre-recorded; however, the student must complete additional required quizzes in order to validate his/her participation and attendance. The quizzes work in a pass/fail format, but if a student fails, he/she is given another opportunity to retest.
Students not in attendance for the first 25% of a course will be dismissed and not allowed to attend for the remainder of the course. Students not attending a course, not successfully completing a program, or not completing the appropriate make-up sessions within 14 business days of the completion of the course will be required to re-register, charged tuition, and attend the course again to earn a certificate of completion.
Because of the short length of the courses offered by Everblue, each student is expected and strongly encouraged to participate in the entire course of which he or she is enrolled. Participants are expected to arrive on time for each course and stay through the duration of the day. In extenuating circumstances, the instructor will work with the student to make up time lost during the course. These situations are handles on a case-by-case basis. For all individuals with planned absences, please contact Everblue’s customer service line to transfer into another course.
In the event of an unanticipated absence, the instructor will work with the student to determine the best way to make up the time spent out of the class. This might include visiting another course, viewing pre-recorded webinars, participating in live webinars, or other means by which the instructor deems appropriate for making up lost instruction.

Tardiness or Early Departures
Students must attend at least 75% of course training to qualify as completing the program. Planned tardiness or early departures must be communicated to Everblue before the course begins.

Should a student be unable to attend a course, he or she may substitute another individual at no additional charge, provided Everblue is notified of the substitution before 5 p.m. (EST) one business day before the program begins. This substitution will count as a fulfilled transaction. If the original student decides to attend a future course, he/she will have to place a new order for the future course.

If a student needs to transfer his or her registration to a future offering of this class, Everblue can arrange this, provided space is available. Students making this decision must submit a written request (by email) to Everblue’s customer support team. Students will be charged a transfer fee based on the schedule set forth below:
Live Classroom Courses
- Students who request a transfer at least 10 business days prior to the start of their live classroom course date will be able to do so at no additional charge.
- Students who request a transfer within 9 business days of the start of their live classroom course date will be charged a $150 transfer fee.
Live, Blended, and On-Demand Webinar Courses
- Students taking a live, blended, or on-demand webinar will not be charged a transfer fee if they request a transfer at least 5 business days prior to the start of their course.
- Students taking a live, blended, or on-demand webinar will be charged a $50 transfer fee if they request a transfer within 4 business days of the start of their course.
Credit for previous courses attended at Everblue or another institution cannot be transferred to any Everblue course.

Cancellations & Refunds
Refunds may be granted to students who cancel their enrollment prior to the start of their program or to students who registered for a cancelled program. Refunds will not be granted to students who voluntarily withdraw from a course after it has started. Refunds will be based on the amount paid by the student at the time of withdrawal, not the total cost of the course. The decision to grant a refund is based on the schedule set forth below:
Live Classroom and All Webinar Formats
- A full refund will be granted to students who cancel their attendance from a course at least 10 business days prior to the start of their Everblue program.
- A full refund will be granted to students who register for a course that has been cancelled. Students who meet this criterion must submit an official refund request by email to an Everblue customer support representative. Otherwise, Everblue representatives will arrange for the student to be transferred to a future offering of the course.
- A refund will not be granted to students who cancel their attendance from a course within 9 business days prior to the start of their Everblue program.
Refunds will be made within 30 business days of a student’s written request.
Cancellation Policy for Training Memberships: Students will have 30 days after purchasing an Everblue Annual Training Membership to opt for a full refund. Refunds will only be given within 30 days of payment as long as no seminar or webinar has been attended. Students may cancel their membership at any time by sending an email to email@example.com. After 30 days of purchase, students will not be entitled to a refund for any annual membership fee already paid.

The purpose of this Grievance Policy is to ensure that participants understand how to report grievances to Everblue upon inappropriate actions by any instructor or employee of this organization and that Everblue has a standardized process to resolve grievances.
A participant may pursue a grievance if he or she believes that an employee of Everblue has violated his or her rights. This Grievance Policy applies to:
- Alleged discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or disability.
- Final grades or certificates of completion.
- Issues related to customer service, registration, and/or record keeping.
- Problems arising in the relationship between a participant and an Everblue employee not recognized in this policy.
It is strongly suggested that the student discuss his or her grievance with the person involved in the situation that has caused the grievance.
The discussion should be held as soon as the participant first becomes aware of the behavior that requires resolution. The participant may wish to present his or her grievance in writing to the person alleged to have caused the grievance. In either case, the person alleged to have caused the grievance must respond to the participant promptly, either orally or in writing.
If an individual decides not to resolve the grievance with the person or the individual does not feel as if the situation was resolved appropriately, he or she may present the grievance in writing to any senior administrator at Everblue. Written grievances and/or notifications must be presented to an administrator at least thirty business days after the individual was involved in the situation that created the grievance. The administrator will conduct an informal investigation to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
Based upon this investigation, the administrator will recommend actions to be taken by all parties involved. The written determination shall include process involved during the investigation, reasons for the decision made by the administrator, and the actions to be taken by each party to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. All decisions are final.
