The fee includes the training course, luncheons and coffee breaks.

Class sizes are limited and workshops may be cancelled if minimum enrollment is not obtained one month prior to the workshop. Workshop fees paid are refundable up to one month before each class.

For participants working in France: the NEA is not a training centre ("centre de formation"), no training agreement ("convention de formation") will be established.
