The registration fee is $50.00 per person.  You must pay the registration fee in advance to be registered and guarantee your seat.  You may pay over the phone using your debit or credit card by calling (540) 373-1848, or bring cash or money order to The Mediation Center at 1119 Caroline Street before noon Friday before the Saturday class.  Your place in the class is not guaranteed until the registration fee has been received, so early payment is highly recommended.  The registration fee is non-refundable; however, you may apply it toward attending another class if you miss your original date.   Your Certificate of Completion will be emailed to you by 5:00 pm that Saturday.
