Shipping Policy

Upon payment, materials will be sent as soon as administratively possible, typically in 4-6 business days.



Refund Policy

In the event that a student is not completely satisfied with the contents of a course or program, or for some other reason wishes to terminate enrollment, the student may contact Novel Engineering – Technical Training to request a refund based on the schedule below. A full refund, less a $50.00 administrative fee, will be given for any course or module if study materials are returned in the condition in which they were received within 30 days of receipt of the study materials. The student will be responsible to pay for return shipping. After 30 days, refunds will be pro-rated as follows, minus the nonrefundable $50.00 administrative fee:

Within 90 days of enrollment                                     75% of course or module fee

After 90 days and within 6 months of enrollment     65% of course or module fee

After 6 months and within 9 months of enrollment   55% of course or module fee

After 9 months and within 1 year of enrollment        45% of course or module fee

After 1 year from enrollment                                      Contact Novel Engineering – Tech. Trng.

The pro-rated refund is contingent upon the return of study texts in the condition in which they were received. The student may elect to purchase the text(s). It is the student’s responsibility to pay for return shipping.



Timely Completion of Coursework

The written correspondence method of delivering training offers a great deal of scheduling flexibility for the student. There is no specific start time or time limit for the completion of a course or module. However, the student is expected to make steady progress, even if the progress is slow-paced. By making steady progress, the student will adjust to workable study habits and maintain continuity of the subject matter being studied. We recommend that students complete a 45-hour course within six months. If a student wishes to suspend study for a period of time, with the expectation of resuming studies at a later date, the student should contact Novel Engineering to discuss an inactive status. Students may resume studies within one year of going on inactive status by contacting Novel Engineering and by submitting a $40.00 administration fee. There may be other fees assessed such as textbook costs if a change has been made to the program while the student was on inactive status.


Re-Taking a Proctored Exam

If a student fails to score at least 60% on any proctored exam, the exam can be re-taken once. There will be a $25.00 administrative fee assessed. If a passing grade is still not achieved, the instructor will assign additional coursework for a fee of one-third of the course fee. A proctored exam will be administered following completion of the additional coursework.
