Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: I've taken trainings at the Connecticut Women's Consortium (CWC) in the past--why isn't the system recognizing my user email or password?
A: As of December 2nd, 2020 we moved to a new registration system. If you recently registered for a course we may have transferred your account email over; otherwise, you will need to create a new account. When creating your account please be sure to utilize your most recent account email address.

Q: What is the cancellation/refund policy?
A: As of January 1st, 2020, CWC will no longer offer credit on account for training cancellations. If you can no longer attend a training you've registered for, you must call CWC and speak with a staff member to immediately transfer into another course or request a refund. refunds, minus a 25% administration fee, are only available up to 48 hours ahead of the training. Alternatively, you may transfer into another course of your choosing up until 9am on the training day. Conferences may have different cancellation policies. Please refer to the individual conference page to learn more.

Q: If I have to leave early on the day of a training or arrive late, will I get Continuing Education Credits (CECs) for the time that I was present?
A: No, partial credit is not given. If you arrive 30 minutes after the start of the event or leave during the event for any reason you will not receive credits, as you have not completed training in the topic.

In accordance with accreditation standards, continuing education hours are only given to those individuals who have completed training in the entire workshop.

Q: What happens if a course is full but I still want to attend?
A: When a course hits the maximum amount of participants, a wait list will become available for sign-ups if applicable. You can sign up for the wait list in the same place you would typically register for the course. Once you successfully add your name to the wait list, you will receive a confirmation email. It is important to note that being on the wait list does not guarantee enrollment. If a seat becomes available, all individuals on the wait list will receive an email notifying them of the opening. It will then be first come, first serve. Be sure to follow the instructions on the email to register for the open slot. If you see that only the wait list option is listed, then someone else registered for the open space ahead of you and the course is once again full. There is no need to sign up for the wait list again if this occurs, as your place on the list will automatically roll over.
