Introduction and Acceptance of Terms
These General Terms and Conditions are valid for each enrollee (“student”) who has registered for a CodingNomads online course (hereafter referred to as “the course” or “the courses”).
The course will take place solely online, using CodingNomads’ online learning platform (http://platform.codingnomads.co/) and use various tools such as IDEs, Git & GitHub, Slack / Discord, and others.
CodingNomads courses are hosted on CodingNomads online learning platform, which has all course documentation, video lectures, and assignments.

- Membership Programs are self-paced, and do not have a set schedule for completion.
Mentorship Program Structure
- CodingNomads Mentorship Programs (also referred to as Intensive Mentored Programs, and Career Tracks) are provided on a month-to-month basis.
- Each month of mentorship includes four (4) one-on-one live mentor video sessions and unlimited online support through email, chat and our forum.
- Students are strongly encouraged to reach out regularly and often so as to learn as quickly and efficiently as possible.
- While enrolled in CodingNomads Intensive Mentored Programs, student will have weekly scheduled 1:1 mentor meetings. These mentor sessions will be scheduled for 60 minutes and arranged between student and mentor at the beginning of the course.

CodingNomads reserves the right to postpone, relocate or change any of the mentor sessions in the case of unforeseen events or medical emergencies. In these unlikely cases we will communicate changes directly with students. If the meeting cannot be rescheduled within the same calendar week, the program end date will be extended for one (1) week per postponed meeting.
Mentor Meeting Cancellations, Reschedules, Pauses, and Program Extensions
Meeting Cancellations: A Meeting Cancellation refers to when a student cancels or otherwise misses a scheduled mentor meeting, and does not request a reschedule or program extension. Students have the right to cancel a mentor meeting at any time, and are not obligated to reschedule or request a program extension. We kindly ask that you notify your mentor at least 24 hours in advance of a cancellation. If a student does not provide 24 hour advance written notice before missing a scheduled mentor meeting, the meeting is considered canceled, cannot be rescheduled, and does not extend the program.
Meeting Reschedules: Students may request to reschedule a mentor meeting by sending written notice to the mentor at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled meeting. Meeting Reschedules are subject to mentor availability, and are not guaranteed.
When it is not possible to reschedule a meeting within the same calendar week, students may request a one (1) week program extension by submitting the Program Extension Request Form.
Students may request to reschedule up to two (2) mentor meetings per calendar month. If a student does not provide 24-hour advance written notice, the meeting cannot be rescheduled, and the program end date cannot be extended.
Program Pauses: A Program Pause refers to when a student requests a planned period of time off from mentor meetings. Students who are enrolled in the mentorship program may request to pause their program on a single occasion for a maximum of 4 weeks. Any pause lasting more than 2 weeks may require a new assignment of mentor. Students may request that billing be paused for the duration of the pause, however, no such grant is guaranteed. Students must complete the Program Extension Request Form to be granted an end-date extension and / or billing pause during this pause. The easiest way to effectively pause a program is to withdraw from the month-to-month mentorship program and start again when ready.
Program Extension Requests: If students would like to request a program end-date extension for meeting reschedules or pauses, they must submit a Program Extension Request Form to be approved by CodingNomads.
All payments will be processed in United States Dollars.
Billing. We use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you through a payment account linked to your Account on the Services (your “Billing Account”) for use of the Paid Services. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. By choosing to use Paid Services, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of such Paid Services in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”). You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If we, through the Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand.
Recurring Billing. Some of the Paid Services may consist of an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. By choosing a recurring payment plan, you acknowledge that such Services have an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. We may submit periodic charges (e.g., monthly) without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice (receipt of which is confirmed by us) that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your payment method. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before we reasonably could act. To terminate your authorization or change your payment method, please contact your account representative or email CodingNomads at kim.desmond[at]codingnomads.co.
Current Information Required. For recurring payments, you must provide current, complete and accurate information for your billing account. You must promptly update all information to keep your billing account current, complete and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date), and you must promptly notify us or our payment processor if your payment method is canceled (e.g., for loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security, such as the unauthorized disclosure or use of your user name or password. Changes to such information can be made by contacting your account representative or emailing [email protected]. If you fail to provide any of the foregoing information, you agree that we may continue charging you for any use of paid services under your billing account unless you have terminated your paid services as set forth above.
Change in Amount Authorized. If the amount to be charged to your Billing Account varies from the amount you preauthorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), you have the right to receive, and we shall provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your payment provider will govern your use of your Payment Method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
Auto-Renewal for Subscription Services. Any Subscription Services you have signed up for will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional rate.
To change or resign your Subscription Services, you can log into CodingNomads learning platform, click your account avatar in the top right, select Profile, and select View / Modify Subscriptions.
If you terminate a Subscription Service, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you won’t be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.
Reaffirmation of Authorization. Your non-termination or continued use of a Paid Service reaffirms that we are authorized to charge your Payment Method for that Paid Service. We may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially selected to use the Paid Service.
Admission / Eligibility / Expulsion
A student’s registration will not be valid until receipt and clearance of payment by CodingNomads. A confirmation and payment receipt will be sent by email once CodingNomads has received the fully completed application form and the related payments.
CodingNomads reserves the right in their sole discretion to accept, decline to accept, or remove any participant from a CodingNomads course at any time during the course period.

It is our policy to assist participants with keeping up with coursework through instructor check-ins and personalized assistance. However if the participant demonstrates repeated inability to complete coursework assignments on time, we reserve the right to remove you from the course. If we must remove you from a course in progress due to inability to complete coursework assignments on time, your tuition will be refunded at a pro-rated amount, minus a cancellation fee of 10% of the full course cost.
If we remove you from a course in progress for any other reason, you will not be entitled to any refund, payment, compensation or credit of any kind for unused or missed services or costs incurred resulting from the termination of your participation. In the case of expulsion, you will be responsible for the course fees.
