How do I cancel my training registration ?


If you register for our training courses and wish to cancel or drop out of classes, then we will provide a full refund provided we recieve your written email notice to info@dbauniversity.com atleast 12 hours before the start of the second session of the course. No refund amount (full or partial) will be provided for any cancellation requests once you pass this deadline. If you decide to join a future course, you must register again and pay the fee. You cannot use the amount paid for a past registration towards a future registration.

The processing of the refund amount can take upto 2 or 3 days from the date of acknowledging your cancellation request.

We require you to make the entire payment at a time during registration.

How do I pay for the training ?

All payments are made online (via a credit/debit card)  when you buy the course. We accept all major cards such as VISA and MASTER cards, including PAYPAL payments.

My card was declined when I tried to make the payment. How can i register in this case ?

For some international students, your payment might get declined because of the fact that your credit/debit card does not allow international payments (US dollars). In this case, please send an email to info@dbauniversity.com and we will provide you an alternative method to make the payment.

I am not in the USA. But you are charging in US dollars. Can I still register ?


Yes. Your credit/debit card provider automatically will charge you in the local currency (what ever is equal to the US dollars in your local currency). All your payments are processed using PayPal online. So its very secure.

Will you complete the training course as per the initial class timetable ?


We will make all attempts to complete the course as per the initial timetable. However, very rarely the course completion may be delayed or a class may be postponed because of the instructor's unavailablity. Each course is expected to complete in the expected duration. We hire and retain the best faculty for our training courses.

I cannot attend a class. Will you teach me the topics that I missed during this class ?

We can provide video recordings upto a maximum of 2 missed classes if you email the training instructor in advance.

.
What is the minimum number of student registrations required for starting a training course ?

The minimum number of student registrations varies per course. We reserve the right to cancel or postpone any course atleast 24 hours prior to the start of the first class should the minimum number of student registrations are not met. In the case of such a situation, we recommend you to wait until the minimum student registration is met or we will refund your entire training fee should you desire so.

Due to the huge demand for skilled database professionals in today's computer/IT job market, most of our courses are sold out.
