Training FAQs

If I do not work directly with NEPA or transportation projects, can I still get value from this course?

Participants of any skill level will fit in, learn, and contribute through this unique format as long as they do their best to engage with the class.  An important goal of ours it to help you remember more practical information after you leave while forgetting you actually were sitting in a training session!

What happens if this training is cancelled?

If we do not receive enough registrations to meet our standards for high quality, interactive case studies, we reserve the right to cancel or reschedule. In the event of inclement weather, we will make a decision to put your safety first.  You will be alerted of any last-minute cancellations or rescheduling due to weather or emergency via email, text, and phone for your convenience.  If we cancel for any reason, we will issue a full refund within 2 weeks. If we reschedule, we will alert you of new dates and confirm your availability or cancel your seat and issue a refund at your request.

Will you accept invoice billing?

If your company or agency requires invoicing instead of advance payment, please email us your request.  If an invoice is approved, we will give you details to register at least 4 business days prior to the first day of training.

What is the refund policy?

One of the ways we aim to provide the best learning experience is through creative group activities. We tailor our groups and case studies to draw from the diversity of disciplines and experiences of our training attendees. That means we are counting on your participation to make the class the best it can be. At the same time, we understand that conflicts arise and not always with much notice. If you have a cancellation at least 4 business days in advance, we will provide a full refund. For unforeseen emergencies, please contact us directly to discuss options: email us at jacqi@adriancollaborative.com.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Yes. Please send us the same information for your replacement as you filled out, particularly the name, years of experience, and technical focus so that we can adjust our teams for the group case studies.

What food choices will I have?

No need to bring or buy your own food or beverages, as we will have creative options all day.  With so many choices, we can adapt quickly to any dietary restrictions. If you have specific concerns or requests, just use the Contact Us button within the Cvent registration page or email us at  jacqi@adriancollaborative.com.

What can/can’t I bring to the event?

You are welcome to bring your phones, tablets, and laptops.  Free wireless access will be provided, and your devices may be useful during the case study on Day 2. Bring whatever you need to be the most effective in class with minimal distractions.

Where can I park? What accessibility options are available?

We encourage any carpooling or commuter options you have available. Downtown Duluth is easily accessible via I-85, SR 120, and Buford Highway, approximately 45 to 60 driving minutes north of the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Free parking is available in lots adjacent to the 3150 Main Street building and across the street. Handicap parking spaces are reserved directly along Main Street in front of the building. All of our breakout sessions and meals will be on site or within easy walking distance of less than 2 blocks. If you have any medical or other accessibility needs, please alert us in advance so that we can take care of them. If you need overnight accommodations, contact us directly for ideas and assistance.
