Legal Notices

Use of this website indicates your acknowledgement of receipt of the following statements and your acceptance of all of the following policies, terms, limitations, etc.

Due to the nature of educational services and products, the Healthcare Certification Institute and DRN Education make no guarantees or assurances of specific results or outcomes as a result of purchasing, subscribing to, or otherwise using our services and/or products.
However, we pledge to you our commitment to provide high-quality services designed to empower your success.

Certification Items
Certification and related services are not eligible for refund in whole or in part.

The Healthcare Certification Institute and DRN Education receive no funding from the US Department of Education and, therefore, are not subject to the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
However, your educational privacy and confidentiality are very important to us.  Accordingly, we voluntarily pledge to take every reasonable effort to hold your educational records and information in the strictest of confidence, as provided and allowed under the law.

The Healthcare Certification Institute and DRN Education reference several trade names and service marks of others in the course of providing educational products and services and informing potential students of our offerings.  Fair use is claimed.  The Healthcare Certification Institute and DRN Education are not affiliated with and are not endorsed by these organizations.

ALL Healthcare Certification Institute resources are the exclusive intellectual property of the Healthcare Certification Institute and DRN Education and/or of our partners.  Purchasing an educational resource (including, but not limited to: certifications, classes, courses, lectures, books, subscriptions, videos, reports, services, etc) is NOT a license to copy, record, share, and/or distribute.  Resources purchased by you are for your individual use during the term of purchase.
Anyone who does and/or attempts to copy, record, share, distribute, and/or the like is in violation of US Copyright Law and other US and international intellectual property rights statutes.
Violating the copyrights and/or other intellectual property rights or attempting to circumvent resource-access-control for any Healthcare Certification Institute and/or DRN Education resource subjects the violator to immediate suspension of resources (including cancellation of certification(s)) without refund (in whole or in part) and to other remedies as provided by law.
Please understand that we do not want to make it difficult to access educational resources; but, the development and distribution of educational materials and resources represents a significant investment on the parts of the developers.  Acquiring an educational resource — any educational resource — without paying for it is theft.  Theft of educational resources hurts both the educators who worked hard to develop them and honest students who will end up paying more for the resource to compensate for theft.

The Healthcare Certification Institute and DRN Education reserve the right to refuse service and/or sale to anyone at our discretion.

The Healthcare Certification Institute and DRN Education are committed to encouraging and sustaining a learning environment that is free from discrimination and harassment.
The Healthcare Certification Institute and DRN Education prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, sex, genetic information, or age.
The Healthcare Certification Institute and DRN Education do not tolerate harassment of any kind.
