NAPD doesn’t apply for CLE or track attendance to provide certifications for our live webinars, conferences and online courses. This helps us keep the price as low as possible and avoids the disruption of the flow of the training required by many states to verify attendance.

By registering for NAPD training, I am affirming that today I am neither a prosecutor, nor attending this training  with the purpose of aiding the prosecution of any criminally accused.   I further affirm that I  am dedicated to the ideals of the criminal defense practitioner, and am committed to the causes of effective and zealous defense of those charged with crimes, the protection and assertion of constitutional rights afforded the criminally accused, and the recognition and preservation of human dignity of those charged with crimes.  I further affirm that my use of the information provided by this training  will not be used by me in any manner which would impugn the above set out ideals.


Refund requests for event and online course registrations must be received via email at: at least 30 days prior to the event’s start date to receive a full refund.  

Refund requests received within 30 days of the event’s start will not be honored, except in the following circumstances:

  • NAPD cancels the event
  • There is an active waiting list for the event and NAPD is able to replace the attendee’s spot

Organizations are welcome to send another attendee in place of the attendee who cancels.  However, the organization must contact prior to the event’s start date to ensure the registration is updated and all required information to complete the registration transfer is provided.

If an attendee enrolls in an online course and must cancel within 30 days of the course’s start date, NAPD will make the course’s recorded sessions and all materials available to the attendee to watch at a later time.  However, the attendee will forfeit participation in the small group sessions  for the course.

SCHOLARSHIPS NAPD takes seriously its responsibility to be a good steward of donations received through the NAPD Fund for Justice. To that end, scholarship recipients should carefully consider their acceptance of these awards and only do so with the full intent of completing the course and fulfilling all requirements related to the scholarship (e.g., providing a video or impact statement afterwards).
