Our site will be going through some major overhauls during June and July. If you are interested in a course that is not on this page AND/OR having trouble enrolling, please contact us so we can ensure you are able to move forward with the purchase or placed on a waiting list for when the course does open. In an effort to streamline viewing all the courses, we have omitted details. Please review the course pages for things like cancellation policies etc.

Also due to the content and additional tools, programs are not always priced per hour earned. However, as a rule of thumb, most of our full certification courses are priced between $35 – $50 per training hour and most of our continuing education courses for BCCs are priced between $15 – $25 per training hour.

The purchasing system used will take you through 3 steps. Right before finalizing your purchase you will see an option to pay securely with a credit card OR by using Pay Pal. It will be your choice as to your payment method.  At this time we do not accept checks.

Classroom Demeanor & Courtesy –

Classroom Demeanor & Courtesy – Because students may not share the same opinions in many courses, it is important that we remember to respect the opinions and ideas of others.  A platform of respect and conscientiousness for all is crucial in order to accomplish our goals.  We are not in any course to judge others for insight and opinions we do not share. Any harsh criticisms or demeaning behaviors will not be tolerated.  In addition, THINK BlueRio and its instructors have the right to remove any students who disobey the policies and procedures, are not willing to complete requirements and have not made attempts to remedy the situation of concern with representatives of BlueRio Strategies.

Any student of BlueRio training courses has the right to seek a remedy for a dispute or disagreement, including issues of grades or material access.  Initial steps are outlined below:

The disagreement must be submitted in writing. The curriculum itself is nonrefundable – however if a student has just cause to believe the curriculum that was delivered was NOT what was promoted or described, or if a grade is considered to be unfair the student may request a review.

BlueRio requires at least 72 hours to make an initial response and may need up to thirty days to offer any final resolution. It will be first presented to the volunteer board of advisors. If a resolution is not satisfactory to both parties, mediation will be considered.
