WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU ENROL

Please read the enrollment terms

Before enrolling in any of our courses or programs, please be sure to read the enrollment terms below and reach out to us with any questions you may have.

​Course prerequisites

There are no prerequisites required to complete any of our courses except the stand-alone Certified Crystal Bodyworker course, in which case previous completion of our Certified Crystal Healer Course or Transpersonal Crystal Healing® Course is required.

 

Recognition for Prior Learning (RPL) for practitioner courses, ACTIVATE and ASCEND programs

Recognition for prior learning (RPL) may be granted for our practitioner courses and programs to some students and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.  Students applying for RPL must provide evidence of their prior learning by providing us with any certificates and a detailed summary of their prior experience and/or education. The maximum amount of RPL granted for any course is 20% for non-Evolve certificate courses or 40% for graduates of our ACTIVATE or CCH program who wish to upgrade to the ASCEND or TCH program.

ENROLLMENT TERMS

5 day cooling off guarantee

All of our full-price course and program enrollments come with a risk-free guarantee of 5 days cooling off period. During this time you can freely access all the online content (including audio, video and quizzes) and request a full refund if it is not what you expected. As soon as you download any of the content or the 5 day cooling off period has passed (whichever happens soonest), the sale is considered final and no refunds will be given under any circumstances. This applies even if you don't download all of the material. 

 

Please note that the 5 day cooling off period does not apply to discounted course/program enrollments including scholarships, introductory offers and promotions. In this case, our regular cancellation and refund policy applies.

Payments

All pricing on this website is in USD. We reserve the right to change our course and membership pricing at any time without notice. Price changes will not impact or apply to current active payment plan subscriptions.

We accept 3 payment methods:

  • PayPal (only available for courses paid in full)

  • Credit card (available for monthly payment plans and full payments)

  • Bitcoin or Etherium (available only for courses paid in full - contact us to arrange private crypto transfer)

Missed payments on a payment plan

If you have enrolled in one of our programs on a monthly plan, the monthly fee will be automatically deducted from your nominated credit card in the equivalent of USD each month (please keep in mind this will fluctuate slightly in your local currency). If your payment is unable to be processed, then our system will continue to attempt to process the payment for 3 weeks. If the payment cannot be recovered after 3 weeks, then your enrollment will be automatically cancelled, without refund. You will need to contact us to re-enroll and may forfeit any discounts or promotional rates that applied to your original enrollment fee.

Course cancellations & refunds

You have 5 days to try our courses and programs and receive a full refund if it is not what you expected, as long as you have not downloaded the content (which can't be 'returned' to us). Once this cooling off period is over, the following refund and cancellation policy applies: You can cancel your program or course enrollment at any time after the cooling off period by contacting us. If you are on a monthly payment plan, then we will cancel your enrollment (without refund) and no further payments will be deducted from your account. If you have paid for the course/program in full, then the appropriate remaining credit will be held for you to use within 12 months of cancellation towards re-enrollment in the same or another Evolve course or program. Once 12 months has passed, then no credit is given for re-enrollment and the full fee is payable to complete the course, less any RPL you are entitled to. Unfortunately, we cannot offer individual payment plans, extensions, discounts or any other payment exceptions. Any previous discounts or coupon codes (including scholarship discounts) that were applied to the original enrollment will be cancelled and cannot be applied to re-enrollments once a course is cancelled.

 

Please note: We do not issue refunds under any circumstances once the 5 day cooling off period has passed. This includes but is not limited to: change of mind, illness, life hardship, course incompletion and change of circumstances. However, we are very happy to work with you in terms of extra time, 'pausing' your study, coaching support and special learning allowances if something unexpected happens. We are also open to discussing an enrollment transfer if you have a friend who would like to do the course/program in your place.

Course access times & extensions

Each program and course has a fixed amount of online access time. If you are in our ACTIVATE or ASCEND programs and your access time ends before you have completed all of the work necessary to graduate and earn your practitioner's certificate, then you can purchase a month-by-month extension at the regular monthly course fee rate. If you are studying one of our individual practitioner courses, then your monthly extension fee is set to a flat rate of $100 per month per course. Please keep in mind that although your coach does check in with you regularly you via email, it is your responsibility to manage and track your course time. We do not take any responsibility for chasing up your assessments or if you do not complete the required course tasks in time. 

Online access times are as follows:

  • AWAKEN program - 12 months access

  • ACTIVATE program - 12 months access

  • ASCEND program - 24 months access

Individual course online access times are:

  • All beginner courses (Chakra Healing, Sacred Rituals & Crystal Body Layouts) - 12 months access

  • All intensive courses (Crystal Grids, Crystal Elixirs, Online Crystal Biz) - 12 months access

  • Certified Crystal Healer Course & Certified Crystal Bodyworker Course - 12 months access

  • Transpersonal Crystal Healing® Course - 24 months access

Sudden institute closure or staff shortage clause

Under normal circumstances, our students receive the access and coaching support outlined above, however, we do not guarantee these access times in the case of a sudden and unexpected closure of our institute or staff loss. Should an unexpected event force the permanent closure of our institute or a critical staff shortage (such a prolonged global pandemic, financial crisis or sudden death/injury/illness of one or more of our team) then we guarantee that all ACTIVATE and ASCEND students will receive a minimum period of 3 months from time of notice of closure or staff loss to receive ongoing support from a staff member and 6 months to submit the necessary course work to earn their qualification. Online course access time will not be impacted (even if the institute closes) and will remain open for the duration of your study period. No refunds will be issued if a sudden and unexpected institute closure or staff shortage impacts our ability to provide live coaching support beyond 3 months from the day of notice.

 

Medical exemptions & hardship

If you are enrolled in our ACTIVATE or ASCEND memberships (or one of our practitioner courses), then you may request one penalty-free 'pause' on your course access time for up to 3 months, for medical or hardship reasons.  You may be asked to present a valid medical certificate to be granted a medical exemption. To be eligible for a 'pause', you must contact us via email at least 1 month before your course/membership expiry date. 

Certificates

On successful completion of any of our practitioner courses, you will receive a beautiful digital practitioner's certificate. If you enrolled in the program on a payment plan, then all of your payments must have been made before your certificate can be issued. You can speed up this process by contacting us and requesting to pay your plan out early.  Under no circumstances do we issue practitioner certificates for courses or programs that have not been completely paid for.

The collection of photos and personal information for the purposes of submitting courses assessments

If you are enrolled in any of our practitioner courses, then you will be required to successfully complete some assessment tasks in order to graduate and receive your practitioner's certificate. Some of these assessment tasks will ask you to submit photographs of yourself or your volunteer clients with crystals in correct position on the body (fully clothed and covered with a blanket or sheet). You may also be asked to share personal information such as your thoughts, feelings or experience of the task. This information will be viewed exclusively by the necessary qualified Evolve Healing Institute employees for the sole purpose of helping you through your training, grading your assessments and providing feedback and guidance.

 

Any information you share with your coach is stored securely and is never shared outside our institute. It is our practice to hold this information for 3 years before permanently deleting it. If you would prefer us to delete this information sooner, these please contact us and we will be happy to fulfill your request.
