What to do if you’ve missed a lesson?
(Basically, people living in the Netherlands have to join every month unless it is unavoidable.) Regarding the absence of a monthly lesson for gaining the certification, there are 2 options:
1. You can take the lesson of the month that you’ve missed together with your next monthly lesson (Note: you can only take the lesson previous of the next month.) In this case, you’d take two lessons together. For example, if you can’t attend the lesson in February, you can take the lesson of March together with the lesson of February. Normally one monthly lesson is 4 hours, but in this case, you’ll have 2 hours for the lesson of February + 2 hours for the lesson of March = total 4 hours.
* Regarding the tuition, one lesson is €65. The total tuition is €65 (for February) + €65 (for March) = €130.
2. You need to wait 2 years to take the lesson, because the cycle of the monthly lessons are 2 years.
