Use of Company Equipment: 

In order to maximize the effectiveness of our trainings, Sertified., LLC agrees to allow you (the participant/candidate) to use the necessary course materials, equipment, and supplies, as outlined in the course’s American Red Cross Instructor’s Manual and/or Instructor Trainer Guide. In return, Sertified., LLC expects that all equipment will be returned in the same condition as when it was lent to you. In order to receive certification, you must return all borrowed equipment back to the course instructor, in the condition that it was lent. Failure to comply with this regulation will result in the withholding of certification, until the equipment is either replaced or repurchased, at the expense of the student. Pending successful completion of the class, once the lost, damaged, destroyed, and/or stolen equipment is replaced or repurchased (by the student) and received by Sertified., LLC Administrators, certification will then be issued. 

You agree to inspect equipment prior to use and notify the instructor if there is any pre-existing damage. You agree to thoroughly disinfect and return all items, promptly, to the course instructor by the end of the course. You understand that you are responsible for replacement costs if the equipment is lost, damaged, destroyed, or stolen. If you fail to return the materials in reasonable condition to the course instructor, you understand that you will not be issued a certification until the materials, equipment, and/or supplies are replenished. 

Accommodations Request: 

All requests for accommodations must be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Should you need to request accommodations, please do so by filling out the ‘Request for Accommodations’ section on the course registration page, prior to submitting payment. If you are unable to disclose this information via the request form, please contact Sertified.’s Administrative Office for further instruction.
