Asking for a refund is dependent on the type of package purchased:

(1)   If you are a monthly subscriber, we will refund you one monthly payment.

(2)  If you are a yearly subscriber, we will refund your full yearly subscription payment if requested within thirty (30) days of payment of the last subscription.

(3)  If you bought a full-year’s worth of podcasts, you may get a refund if you request within thirty (30) days from date of purchase.

2.6.4    Account and Access to all Webinars will be Closed

As part of the refund process, OSP will deactivate your account. You will no longer be able to download any PDU Podcast Webinars. This includes webinars from previous subscription cycles. For example: If you ask for a refund of your subscription for “Year 3”, then you will also no longer be able to download the webinars from “Year 1” and “Year 2” using your current account. If you need to download these webinars, then please do so before requesting a refund. However, OSP will work with you so that you can download them if you forget.

2.6.5    Claiming PDUs After a Refund is Unethical

You agree not to claim any PDUs for any refunded Webinars. Doing so would be unethical and in violation of The PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. OSP reserves the right to communicate refunds to PMI to ensure that everyone follows ethical behavior.

If you still wish to claim PDUs, then don't ask for a refund. Instead, simply cancel your subscription when your subscription is due for renewal. If you have a monthly subscription, cancel before the next month, and if you have a yearly subscription, cancel before the next yearly cycle begins.
