2. What do I do if I can't attend a course due to an accident or sickness?




Together with your course registration letter, which we send to you by mail, you receive a flyer of the ELVIA insurance. If you buy the insurance, all costs including course, hotel and liftticket) are covered in case of an accident or illness. The insurance costs 4% of the course price. You pay the amount directly to the insurance as described on the flyer. We strongly recommend that insurance, as otherwise all costs will need to be covered by yourself.
