Hello NC HOPErs! 

We are so grateful to be back training face to face. It has been a great start to the new year! The NCCPSS certification training program has required all curriculum owners to make changes to our programs effective MARCH 1ST, 2021.  Below is a list of changes you should expect to see:

  1. All participants must give a 3 week notice, in writing, if they plan not to attend a class they have registered for in order to qualify for a refund. All other ways a refund will be honored is listed on our cost and registrations page. 
  2. If you miss more than 3 hours of class time you will be required to stop the class, register again, start over and pay for the class again.
  3. If a class has less than 5 people attending the class must be canceled.
  4. If you have any complaints you would like to express feel free to contact us at 919-809-7101 or the anonymous NCCPSS Program line at 919-843-3018.
  5. We would like to reiterate that we recognize all paths to recovery and will provide reasonable accommodations where ever possible when we are informed of such needs. 

As always, NC HOPE is committed to providing quality, engaging, comprehensive training to all participants. We look forward to seeing you in class.
