(*If the exam fees were included in a bundle purchase package, the exam fees discounted price will be refunded.)


Membership & Certification Renewal Dues

Due to the nature of Memberships and Certification/Certificate Renewals, these items are non-refundable as they are elected affiliations and participations of the aquatic fitness professional.



If your purchase is defective, you may return it in its original condition within 30 days of receipt. We will exchange the item at our discretion (less shipping and handling). To return or exchange an item, the product must be in its original packaging and have all of the contents that were shipped from our office. Please allow 7-14 business days to process your exchange.
