MDS/RAI Advisor is not responsible for internet connection issues the attendee may experience due to issues caused by the attendee's internet provider. If more than 10% loss of information was due to the attendee's internet provider connection problem, a recording of the session may be made viewable for a limited time, if available.   Connectivity issues not due to MDS/RAI Advisor's platform are not eligible for a refund.  (Example, if during the Audio/Visual check at 7:30am went well for you and then an hour later, the event can actively be seen and heard by attendees with no problems but you can no longer see or hear the presentation, then your internet provider or device has issues. In this case, MDS/RAI Advisor is not responsible for internet connection issues the attendee may experience due to the attendee's own internet provider.)

 

However, if it is found that MDS/RAI Advisor's internet provider has caused a disruption (because it is obvious that no one can hear or see the presentation) during the training causing more than 10% loss of information due to connectivity issue, MDS/RAI Advisor will reschedule or provide a full refund.

MDS classes, MDS courses and/or MDS seminars vary in location and are held in either special events conference rooms or at our office work space conference rooms; thus, start time may be different depending on location.  Live Stream is an added format starting April 2020.
