- Refund Policy
We believe that our products are of exceptional value and that our clients will be completely satisfied with the content, reliability, and service we provide. Therefore, we offer a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee – no questions asked. To be eligible for a refund, customers must not have accessed any Final Quiz and/or any Certificate of Completion. No refunds after 30 days of purchase. Administrative fees may apply depending on the case. For single Continuing Education Courses, no refunds after 30 days or if more than 40% of the course has been marked complete.
- Course Access Time
For students enrolled in the 40-hour program consisting of 10 core modules, there is a time limit of 12 months from the date of purchase to complete the 40 hours of training. Once the course expires, all modules and complementary materials will be removed from the student’s profile. Students who are unable to complete the course within the one-year timeframe have the option to purchase a one-time Extension of three months for a fee of $100. However, if the course has been expired for more than 12 months, Extension eligibility is not available. In such cases, full payment will be required to regain access to the course.
For students enrolled in a 4-hour Continuing Education class, there is a time limit of three months from the date of purchase to complete the training. Once the class expires, the module will be removed from the student’s profile. Students who are unable to complete the class within three months have the option to purchase a one-month Extension for a fee of $15.00. For more information on Extensions, please contact us directly.
- Course Participation
The student is expected to actively, honestly, and diligently participate in the training program. This includes engaging in the course materials, completing assigned exercises, and actively seeking to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills. Any form of dishonesty, such as plagiarism or cheating, is strictly prohibited.
- Course Assessment
The evaluation of acquired knowledge will be carried out through formative assessments. Students must achieve a minimum score of 70% in all quizzes throughout the course. These quizzes can be attempted multiple times to attain the required score.
No final summative exam is required to complete the course. MITS will retain records of scores, logins, and timestamps in its computer system as evidence of attendance. However, if any discrepancies arise or additional verification is needed, students may be asked to submit copies of their coursework to confirm active participation and successful completion.
- Content Time Limitations
To enhance understanding and absorption of the training program, MITS has established a maximum limit of eight hours of content per day, or two modules, for all students, regardless of their educational or professional background. Adhering to this limit is crucial to facilitate effective learning and retention of the material.
Participants must fulfill the training program requirements by completing a minimum of 40 hours within the designated timeframe. Deviating from these time limitations may result in disqualification from certificate eligibility or require the submission of evidence demonstrating proper course completion.
- Final Certificate of Completion Policy
To obtain a Final Certificate of Completion, students must successfully complete all exercises in the program as indicated by the instructor within the designated timeframe.
Partial completion of the training program, characterized by participants failing to meet the minimum 40-hour requirement or exceeding the stipulated eight-hour daily limit, shall render them ineligible for the issuance of a Certificate of Completion. However, participants may opt to undergo a verification process by submitting the supplementary documentation as required by MITS.
Take notice that MITS does not offer credit or recognition for coursework, degrees, or diplomas acquired from other educational institutions, irrespective of their subject matter’s relevance. Consequently, no other scholastic attainments can serve as a substitute for the issuance of the 40-hour certificate of completion.
- Completion Verification Process
In the event that a student exceeds the stipulated eight-hour daily limit or irregularities are found in the timestamps, the following provisions apply:
MITS will contact student and request the submission of supplementary documentation, including completed worksheets, personalized glossaries, and exercise recordings, to validate the completion of the training program.
A verification process will be conducted by MITS to assess the submitted documentation and ensure compliance with program requirements and duration. Additionally, a Zoom session will be scheduled for the student to play the recordings of all interpreting exercises.
Based on the results of the verification process, MITS may implement remedial actions, such as adjusting training hours, completion timeframe, or requiring the student to retake the entire program, to address the violation.
The issuance of the Certificate of Completion is contingent upon successful program completion. Failure to provide satisfactory supplementary documentation or rectify the violation may result in disqualification from certificate eligibility.
MITS retains the authority to determine the review process for supplementary documentation and make decisions regarding certificate eligibility and necessary remedial measures, with its decisions being final and binding.
- Academic Dishonesty
In the unfortunate event that a student is found to have engaged in academic dishonesty, such as cheating, plagiarism, fabrication, or misrepresentation within the training program, the following remedial actions shall be taken:
Upon receipt of a credible report or evidence indicating potential violation, MITS will initiate a thorough investigation. This may involve reviewing materials, logins, timestamps, quizzes, and conducting interviews to consider all relevant evidence.
If the investigation confirms cheating or academic dishonesty, MITS reserves the right to impose disciplinary measures, such as warnings, academic penalties, suspension, expulsion, or other necessary actions to uphold program integrity.
In cases of substantiated cheating or academic dishonesty, MITS has the authority to revoke previously awarded certificates or withhold the final certificate associated with the training program. Please note that no refund of the tuition fee will be eligible in such circumstances.
MITS may report the incident to relevant certifying bodies, employers and other stakeholders as required by law or guidelines to maintain educational integrity.
Fair and impartial procedures will be followed, ensuring due process. Students will have the opportunity to present their case, respond to allegations, and provide relevant evidence within the designated timeframe.
Students have the right to appeal decisions regarding cheating or academic dishonesty, following established MITS policies and procedures.
