The student pledges to be the sole individual accessing and completing the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy Home Study Program. The Home Study Program materials are strictly prohibited from being shared with other individuals or organizations, as is the work burden required for completion of the Home Study Program.
The tuition for the Full CDT Certification Course is $3,200. A deposit of $900 is required at the time of registration and will hold a spot in the course until the remaining balance is received no later than two (2) weeks prior to the first day of class.

100% attendance is expected of the student. Any student missing more than five (5) hours of the class may not receive a certificate of completion.
Certificate of Completion
In order to receive a certification of completion, the student must pass the written and practical exams as required by the instructor.
Purpose of the Training
The student agrees that the purpose of the training is to become proficient in the techniques of Manual Lymph Drainage and Complete Decongestive Therapy. Although the student is free to distribute information concerning lymphedema upon completion of the course, the student shall not under any circumstances train or certify any other person in MLD or CDT unless granted instructor status by the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy.
Registered students are eligible to transfer to another Full CDT Certification Course once within 12 months of the original registration date free of charge. Subsequent transfers will incur a $200.00 transfer fee. Said fee will accrue against the student’s credit balance. The student may only transfer if the credit balance is sufficient to cover the transfer fee. Once the student commences taking a Full CDT Certification Course, all accrued transfer fees will be waived. In the event that the student does not transfer to another course and does not commence a Full CDT Certification Course within a continuous 12-month period, the accrued transfer fees will be deducted from the student’s credit balance and the remaining credit balance will be refunded to the student.
Withdrawal from the program may result in a loss of tuition monies. If the student cannot complete the course in its entirety due to personal emergency or medical reasons, a 12-month grace period will be granted from the original date of the live course. During this grace period the student may contact the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy to arrange a return date for a scheduled course to reserve a seat. At the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy’s discretion the student’s participation in the course may be abbreviated to include only days missed rather than the entire course. If coursework is not satisfactorily completed during the grace period all tuition monies will be forfeited.
Any student may be dismissed from the program for insufficient progress, non-payment of tuition, non-attendance, or unprofessional/unethical conduct. Reinstatement following dismissal is at the discretion of the instructor and/or the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy.
Cancellation of Classes
If the course is cancelled because of insufficient registration, all monies received will be refunded or transferred to another class as elected by the registrant. In the case of cancellation of the class for any other reason, a new course will be scheduled and all payments will be transferred. In the event that the instructor falls ill, the class will be rescheduled.
