13. What is CollabNet VersionOne's Public Course Cancellation and Refresh Policy?
As an added value to course participants, CollabNet VersionOne reserves two seats at each of its public courses for individuals who have already successfully completed a course from us, but would like to take it a second time at no cost. This allows participants to brush up on their Scrum basics or attend a session led by a different Certified Scrum Trainer. The offer is provided on a first-come, first-served basis and must be used for the same course as the original (i.e., an individual who completed a CSM course may enroll in another CSM course, but not a Product Owner course). In addition, this offer is only available within the first six months following the original course, so please contact us as early as possible to reserve your seat.
