Frequently asked questions
Can we get a Team Discount for this course?
Unlike almost every other HeatSpring course, this one isn't eligible for a Team Discount because of the way our contract works with NABCEP.
Since this course includes a full pass to the NABCEP conference, we can't provide the same discounts that we normally do on other classes.
