SPICE Policies:
All SPICE courses must be registered for and paid for in their entirety. Due to a new MD sales tax regulation, we are now required to charge 6% sales tax on all courses delivered electronically. Once it is safe to hold our courses in person, we will cease having to collect sales tax.

Until otherwise noted, all SPICE courses for January-June 2022 will be presented on Zoom. If you are unable to attend a session, most SPICE courses will be recorded for your convenience.

SPICE fees are per head, not per household, with a 50% off fee for second registrants within the same household.

A minimum of 15 enrollees per course are required in order to hold the course. If a course must be canceled, those registered will be notified and a SPICE credit will be issued.
