2. How and when do I register?

Registration starts on June 1st 2021 and will be processed in order of receipt. If the number of available seats is exceeded, participants can, if desired, be placed on a reserve list. Early registration is recommended. Registration only becomes final after your payment is confirmed. The maximum number of participants is currently 16 (see COVID-19 paragraph below). The workshop will only take place when a minimum of 10 participants apply.

3. What is the registration fee of the workshop?

The registration fee of the workshop is €650 for early registration before or on July 31, 2021. From August 1, 2021 the registration fee will be €850. This includes course material, coffee/tea, lunches and a joint dinner in the historic Alkmaar city centre when COVID-19 restrictions allow (a suitable alternative will be offered otherwise). Payment must be made electronically (e.g. IDEAL), after which a proof of payment will be sent.

4. What are the cancellation conditions?

Cancellation of your registration must be done in writing via info@petctworkshop.nl and is final only after written confirmation.

5. What is the refund policy in case of cancellation

Full refund when less than 10 participants apply. From June 1 to July 31, 2021: full refund minus €50,- administration costs. From August 1 to August 21, 2021: 80% refund. After August 21, 2021 no refund will be given.

6. Which organizations have applied for accreditation?

The workshop had been accredited by the Dutch Society of Cardiology (NVVC - 12 points), Dutch Society of Nuclear Medicine (NVNG - 12 points) and the Dutch Society of Clinical Physicists (NVKF - 12 points).

7. What precautions are taken in response to the COVID-19 virus?

We aim an occupancy of two participants per workstation for the hands-on workshops. However, due to the current national 1.5m distance measures (RIVM), currently only one participant per workstation is registered. When the national rules are sufficiently relaxed will this be extended to two participants per workstation.

8. Will my registration fee be refunded when the workshop is cancelled due to COVID-19 issues?

If the Dutch government imposes restrictions on COVID-19 and as a result the workshop cannot take place, a refund of the entire registration fee minus €50,- administration costs will follow. The organization reserves the right to change the program, for instance to divide the workshops into two smaller groups (morning and afternoon sessions will then be switched for one group). In case of cancellation due to COVID-19 restrictions, the organization will not be liable for any consequential damages.

9. Am I permitted to copy the cases on my mass storage device for later personal use?

No. It is not allowed to copy any course material for your own use.

10. Will PDFs of the lecture slides be provided after the course?

No, but we will be happy to share our expertise in other ways after attending the course.

11. What is the spoken language of this workshop?

In case of international attendees, the entire workshop will be held in English.

12. Where can I park my car?

The best place for parking your car is at one of the parking lots of the hospital. The parking rates should be around €15.83 per day (see Parking at Noordwest). A good alternative is the Singelgarage. Parking rates of the Singelgarage are currently about €16.70 for one full day.
