A ‘No Show’ is when a trainee does not cancel prior to an event and does not show up to training. In the event of a No Show, we mark the training seat used.
If extenuating circumstances have prevented a trainee from cancelling or attending an event, they may request permission to register for an additional event using the same registration code by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. IMPORTANT: **Requests to re-register must be received within 7 days after the end date of the event. **
Trainees with multiple unexplained no-shows may be barred from future registration.
Trainees who miss more than 1 hour of an Instructor Training event may be marked absent. Trainees are not eligible for Instructor certification until their record indicates that they have completed a full Instructor Training event.
Trainees who miss up to 4 hours (1 half day) of an event can schedule a 50-minute 1:1 makeup meeting to complete their training with The Carpentries Director of Instructor Training. Makeup meetings can be scheduled via Calendly. Trainees who missed more than 4 hours of an event should not schedule a makeup meeting. (See Retaking a Training Event, below.)
To prepare for a makeup meeting, trainees should review all sections of the Instructor Training Curriculum that they missed and come prepared to share thoughts and questions about those sections.
Re-taking a Training Event
Trainees who miss more than 4 hours (1 half day) of an event are not eligible for a makeup meeting, but can ask to attend another event in full. To request permission to register for an additional training event, trainees should email email@example.com within 30 days of a missed event.
Trainees who miss more than 1 hour of a training may be marked absent, even when they have attended part of a prior event. Multiple partial trainings may not be used to complete the training requirement.
Ineligibility for Makeup Opportunities
Trainees who miss an event in full without cancelling within 7 days (no-show) or who miss part of an event but do not request a makeup opportunity within 30 days are ineligible to register for a new training event using the same registration code. Trainees with a strong interest in completing training may contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be advised on their options for re-admission.
Checkout Extensions Policy
Trainees are asked to complete checkout within 90 days of attending an Instructor Training event. Having a deadline is necessary to support busy people in prioritising a goal we all care about. However, it is sometimes necessary for trainees to postpone completing checkout.
Trainees who are unable to complete checkout within the 90-day deadline should contact us at email@example.com to request an extension. Extensions may be granted up to one year after the checkout deadline. After one year, you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org to explore opportunities to re-take the training.
