ACA members have varying access to a limited number of on-demand courses, educational tools and resources and all subscription standard features.
Any paid member subscription shall automatically renew one year from the purchase date and every year thereafter with the credit card used in the initial purchase. Members are responsible for updating their credit card information.
Customers that enroll in an ACA automatic renewal can cancel at any time by logging into their ACA Account and choosing to cancel auto-renew. Upon cancellation, no future payments will be processed.

At ACA, we are proud to offer the highest quality educational products on the market. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your ACA experience, contact us within thirty days of your purchase for a refund or product exchange.
At our discretion, if we believe you are abusing our credit/refund policy, we reserve the right to ban your account and to restrict all future use of the Services.
