Frequently Asked Quesitons
What is Your refund policy?
Refund Policy: You may cancel your membership within 48 hours of signing up if you have not already been granted access to the member area. A 25% processing fee will be withheld from your refund. Due to the nature of our business and the content within the member area, we are not able to provide a refund of any kind once we have granted you access to the member area. ** If you are denied access to the membership, a 50% refund will be returned to you. It is important to confirm whether your school is approved prior to applying to avoid such a situation.
We want to get an idea of who our members are but your resume and background do not determine your eligibility for membership. We will not deny membership if you lack experience in a holistic nutrition or health coaching setting.
We do not share your resume with anyone outside of our organization. It is for internal use only.
I do not live in Canada but would love to join GAIN. Am I able to do so?
Absolutely! We accept members internationally and all offerings are available to all professional members with the exception of liability insurance (Canada, USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand only) and Health & Dental (Canada only.)
Do I have to obtain CE Credits each year and how many?
Yes, life long learning is a necessary component to working in a health related field. You are required to obtain 20 CE credits per year. Your credits are waived for the first year if you joined CAIN in the same year that you graduated. We have many pre-approved CE programs, summits, books etc. that you can take to obtain your credits and add more and more each year.
